9 Influential HR Leaders You Should Follow on Twitter

Here at CoreHR, we talk, tweet, blog, and post a lot about the latest trends in HR technology, everyday HR problems, and basically anything that’s going on in the HR world – all in the hope that we are helping make HR pros life that little bit easier. However, we are not the only ones with a hunger for knowledge, a thirst for change, and on a mission to make the world of work a better place. And thankfully so. We can’t do it alone.

There are tons of incredible people and resources online where you can learn about the latest and greatest in HR. Twitter is one of our favourite places to chat and hear the thoughts of some of the leading minds in HR,  it’s incredible the amount of knowledge you can pack into just 140 characters. But with so many greats, comes the question – who to follow, or not to follow?

To help make that decision a little easier, we have listed (in no particular order) the HR influencers who we believe will bring lots of insight, inspiration and in some cases, even a little fun to your Twitter feed.
