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.

Be Respectful

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

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.

Actively Participate

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.
