Welcome to SmartHR! So what is it?

Why belonging is the New Black?
Kaspars Bernans, Business Development Director at
In today's remote work environment, fostering a sense of belonging among employees is more important than ever. Without face-to-face interaction and a shared physical space, many remote workers struggle to feel connected to their colleagues and company. That's where comes in.

Why do you need internal communication in 2023?
Taavi Toots, CEO& co-founder of GuavaHR
The answer is to get people informed, yes. But what does it actually mean?

I will dig deeper and be sharing the ideas what we have learned during our 4.5 years journey in Guava - working with our customers, doing a lot of demos/discussions, and going through all the theoretical framework to actually build our product.

I'm also sharing the results of the experiment we made with HR managers.

Increasing Employee Lifetime Value
All businesses calculate their Customer Lifetime Value, but do we measure Employee Lifetime Value (ELTV) for our teams?

WORKSHOP: Design thinking methods in HR

Katri Vintisa, HR Laboratory mentor

Katri Vintiša has been working in the field of strategic human resource management for more than 20 years. She was part of the human resources management team of the Latvian state administration in the State Chancellery, as well as involved in the unified human resources management platform creation.

Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that involves understanding people's needs and motivations, generating creative solutions, prototyping, and iterating until the optimal solution is found. It is typically used in product and service design, but it can also be applied to human resources HR to improve employee experience, engagement and more.

The participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to work practically, researching the main issues of HR in their company, share their experiences, and become more familiar with "design thinking" methods.
