Some “HR and Corona” videos

As live HR conferences are not possible at the moment, new webinars, podcasts, virtual conferences and what have you appear every day. Although the new “earning models” are not so clear yet (online = free seems to be the norm), Tom Haak is gladly making an appearance here and there. Some examples:

Effectory  is organising a weekly webinar series. Tom Haak spoke in the second episode, about the Corona crisis as an HR incubator.


On May 4, 2020, Vera Lorenzo, CEO of the Brazilian Fala Company, talked with Tom Haak, with an audience of Brazilian HR professionals and others. A recording of the conversation is available.


The Best of HR Forum is a network for Indian HR professionals. They regularly organise webinars with HR thought leaders. On May 6 Tom Haak spoke about trends in people analytics.
