Resources for Humans
Welcome to Resources for Humans, our free Slack community of 9,000 HR leaders!
This community is designed to help HR professionals connect, share advice, and ask questions.
We're so excited to have you join us!
BUT read this onboarding document before you jump in and start participating!
Code of Conduct
To help maintain a safe and welcoming environment, we ask that all community members adhere to a few guidelines that are listed below. Don’t worry, the rules are simple.
NOTE: This is not a community for legal advice and on some range of topics (visas, harassment issues, compliance, etc.) the community members are not giving legal advice and should not be considered responsible for that advice.
Always be supportive and helpful to others. Speak to others the way you’d like them to speak to you. Help us keep this place as accessible and inclusive as possible.
No selling, please and thank you!
This space is strictly for HR professionals
to connect and learn from each other.
If anyone reaches out to you trying to solicit a product, to push a survey for company purpose, etc., notify an RfH admin.
Keep it in the Community
Resources for Humans is a safe space for HR leaders to ask questions and share their POV. These conversations should be kept within the confines of the community; no sharing with the outside world.
The quality and usefulness of this community depends on you:
- Ask questions
- Answer questions
- Engage in discourse
- Keep the conversation to the right channel
The best policy is one message, one channel — avoid posting in multiple channels for more visibility (for everyone’s sake)!
We encourage you to help lead the conversation! This community is a forum to engage with other knowledgeable professionals — think of it as a place to discuss strategies, ask questions, share insights, provide mentorship, etc.
Before you start
Fill out your Slack profile! Where do you work and what do you do? For example, put your company in your name so people know, like Grace (Lattice).
Make sure to add a profile picture.
Introduce yourself in the #introductions channel.
Set your Slack notifications however you prefer. Keep in mind you can leave and join any channel you wish!
What is Resources for Humans?
Resources for Humans is Lattice’s community for People Ops professionals. It’s a safe space for HR Professionals to ask questions and share their knowledge and experience with others!
I want to invite a friend to RfH, why can’t I add them?

I applied — how long will it take for my application to get approved?
Applications are reviewed by an RfH admin once a week.
