Jeff Waldman is the founder of SocialHRCamp, a cost-recovery event platform that teaches HR and recruitment practitioners how to integrate technology and social media into the workplace.
Thus far, Waldman has already run 15 SocialHRCamps and will be running his next one in Los Angeles. He will also be holding his 4th DisruptHR Toronto event in June.
Waldman has also spoken at various conferences and advised several HR tech companies on product roadmaps and go-tomarket strategies. Having found that HR professionals tend to be relatively slow in adopting technology, he sees the need for more emphasis on HR technology, especially with the expected increase in use of artificial intelligence in 2017.
In leading SocialHRCamp, Waldman draws on his previous roles in HR. For example, as head of talent for Toronto-based software security company Security Compass, Waldman built a pioneering HR strategy that has enabled the use of technology for growing employer brand awareness. This has allowed the company to allot more time for recruiting top talent and building its workplace culture.
