Here’s to the HR rebels!

20 november 2017

HRbuilders is committed to connecting great people in HR. We are convinced that #TheFutureOfWork is all about flexibility and that’s why we invest heavily in building freelance careers.The 4th industrial revolution with technology, demographics and globalization as major drivers have shifted the context of work and workforce fundamentally.  We are convinced that 80% of what HR is doing today won’t be done by them anymore in 5 years or less. HR is challenged to rethink the talent value proposition and to radically shift towards a new HR framework in which traditional HR is topped off with progressive HR.

This week’s #ConnectWithContent is your ultimate wake-up call as HR is headed for total disruption! It’s time for a new breed of HR rebels and we are going to help them lead the way and take on the role of Chief adaptability officer.
That’s why we are organising an exclusive meet-up with Peter Hinssen to help HR rebels accelerate their ‘Day after tomorrow thinking’. 
To get everyone warmed up, we’ll be sharing some thoughts from Peter’s book ‘The day after tomorrow’ in the upcoming 4 weeks.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you cannot do, is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they will change the world, are the ones who do”

Here’s to the HR rebels!


If you look at tomorrow, with what you know today, and extrapolate that, you surely will miss out on some fundamental changes. 
If you try to imagine #TheDayAfterTomorrow, with all possible scenarios of radical change, and work your way back from there, you’ll end up with a different kind of tomorrow.

What if you would apply this Day-after-tomorrow-thinking to your company’s strategy?
What if you would apply this Day-after-tomorrow thinking in order to completely redesign your HR framework?

We all know HR needs to radically shift in order to avoid extinction. 
Only, there’s this huge gap between knowing and doing. 

So how do you move yourself in the right direction? 


  • First, you need a bold culture that overcomes the fear of failure and that fuels the thirst for learning because you can’t afford not to make mistakes.
  • Second, you need HR rebels who are willing to take on the role of chief adaptability officer and lead the way to change.
  • Third, you need a disruption committee with mavericks that constantly challenge the status quo to collectively dream up #TheDayAfterTomorrow for your company. 

At HRbuilders we challenge HR rebels to apply this Day-after-tomorrow thinking. 


And to get things going, we invited our HR community for an exclusive meet-up with thought leader Peter Hinssen Saturday December 16th.

Next week more radical inspiration from Peter Hinssen’s book ‘the day after tomorrow’
