We baked up the idea of Cake & HR as a way to bring HR professionals together in a positive space.
Cake & HR events happen on a regular basis at a growing number of locations across the UK.
Topics for discussion are influenced by our members. We have a reputation for running sessions that are both informal and informative, no selling and no chalk and talk, just like minded people sharing HR expertise.
Of course we take note of trends and the gurus, like any good HR professional, but essentially in the network we are only interested in what works and what doesn't.
Whether you are part of a big HR department of a plc, or an SME, of value to both will always be our topical events where we invite HR national guest speakers to cover a current HR topic. Equally the value of simply building your HR network in the local area.
If you sit as part of a small HR team, then our community zone can really provide that confidential, impartial support you may want, if there is nowhere else internally to go.
