Uncubed, a leading marketplace for recruiting talented millennials through compelling video content, announces today its inaugural HR Uncubed conference — an event dedicated to helping human resource professionals supercharge their employer brands — which will take place on April 27 and 28, 2017, in Brooklyn, New York.
HR Uncubed will tackle the most pressing recruiting, hiring, and employer branding challenges that today’s companies face through a curated series of intimate panels, discussions, and fireside chats held in distinct Williamsburg venues including Brooklyn Brewery.
“Uncubed has built a reputation for turning traditional, tired conferences into high-energy events. So when the HR community expressed a desire for an innovative east coast conference, we decided to take on the challenge,” said Tarek Pertew, CCO and Co-Founder of Uncubed.
Day one (April 27) sessions of HR Uncubed focus on defining internal company culture and shaping a more compelling employer brand story, while day two (April 28) sessions encourage attendees and speakers to explore new tools, content development, and outreach methods to more effectively attract quality candidates.
“We designed the event as a forum for idea exchange amongst peers to ensure every attendee gains practical knowledge on building an authentic employer brand, which we know has serious implications for hiring great talent,” said Pertew.
Attendees will also learn what not to do in a fireside chat with Dan Lyons, author of the New York Times best-selling book, Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Startup Bubble, and screenwriter for two seasons of HBO’s hit comedy Silicon Valley.
The HR Uncubed speaker roster includes an additional 50+ industry experts from Fortune 500 companies and fast-growing startups:
- Susan Lee, Vice President of People at Warby Parker
- Edward Dias, Director of Recruitment Intelligence & Innovation at L’Oreal
- Erin Dertouzos, Head of Talent and Culture at Meetup
- Stacey Olive, Executive Director of Talent Acquisition at The New York Times
- Regis Courtemanche, Director of Learning & Talent Development, BuzzFeed
