The learning community for HR professionals!

We work in talent planning, talent outreach, employer branding. learning & development and employee engagement.

We share Best Practices, organize community events (virtually and onsite) and run our own academy where you can get recognized with digital certificates.

About our community

The community is based on the group „UN & friends HR CoP on LinkedIn Talent Solutions (Plan, Hire, Develop, Engage)“ which was created in July 2017 and operated by Iryna Melnikova, Mian Nabeel Ahmad and Rolf Reinhardt.

We meet once per month online to discuss the latest talent trends and exchange Best Practices. Please feel free to reach out to learn more.
