HR and Recruiting Pros Are Invited to Social Siesta at #SXSW

social siesta hr human resources

For the last nine years, I’ve hosted the Siesta Siesta Happy Hour designed for a meeting place for HR and recruiting professionals to connect and network away from the crazy and crowds during SXSW. In the past, the event has given local Austinites the opportunity to experience South by Southwest without the parking challenges and traffic that is part of the two-week conference and festival.

Attending SXSW is where I first fell in love with Austin. In 2017, I relocated to Austin making this city the new HQ for myself, my family and my business. I’m pleased to announce my love affair with Austin and SXSW continues with our annual Social Siesta happy hour from 1:00-3:30 PM on Saturday, March 9th, 2019.

The platform gives you all an end-to-end view of all that is related to your people in the form of analytics. Check it out –
