In 2020, human resources conferences saw a big disruption as a result COVID-19.

Most conferences were forced to move virtual/online which is where we’ll see most HR conferences in 2021.

This year is projected to have fewer conferences so we decided to include some human resource webinars to our list.

We also added an HR Conference table for a quick reference. Below the table, we list out each HR conference/webinar and give you a detailed look including: date, location, key agenda items, and pricing.

Note: With uncertain times ahead we will do our best to keep this post up to date if any HR conferences move.
