HourMinds 2018 has been full of inspiring stories from HR rockstars and actionable takeaways to help you grow your business. This year’s theme was “leading the era in flexible work” and 3 common topics that we kept hearing about were: how to get the most out of flexible work, the impacts of underemployment and attracting talent through your culture. So, we took to Twitter to see what all the buzz is about.
