In conjunction with its 2016 theme, “HR in the Most Innovative Place on Earth,” HR West has launched the Go HR West Sweepstakes (#GoHRWest) in an effort to create excitement around its annual San Francisco Bay area conference. HR West also looks to increase the conversation surrounding the importance of human resources professionals and the overall industry on social media.

San Francisco, California (January 5, 2016) —HR in the Most Innovative Place on Earth,” is the theme for HR West 2016.  Now, in its 32nd year, the San Francisco Bay area human resources industry conference (serving a community of over 20,000 HR professionals) has initiated the #GoHRWest Sweepstakes. The goal is to get the word out and build buzz about HR West and, more importantly, increase awareness about the power of innovation in the human resources industry through the power of digital media. The Go HR West Sweepstakes is happening now through Friday, February 26, 2016.

Sweepstakes participants are asked to post photos, videos, vines, gifs, graphics (featuring themselves, colleagues, nature and pets… etc.), simple text or simply “share and comment on” one of the HR West (@HRWestConf) posts via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Vine – tagged with #GoHRWest for chances to win. 

The more a participant posts #GoHRWest content and the more their specific content is liked, retweeted, shared and commented on, the greater number of points earned (1 point for each post and each engagement on each post). The participants with the highest combination of retweets, likes, shares, comments and favorites (combined on all platforms) will be selected as the first, second, and third place winners respectively.
