As we move into the next phase of our CIPD/MIX Hackathon, we’re delighted to host our next Hackathon Hangout with some of you—members of our hacking community.
Our hackers are based in HR and OD roles in the UK, Mainland Europe, and the US. The CIPD Hackathon Guides John McGurk and Perry Timms will facilitate an open chat with these hackers; exploring in more detail their thoughts and hacks around HR metrics, performance management, and reward mechanics. There is no script, so this could cover a range other topics depending on what the hackers inspire in each other.
Please share any questions you have for the hackers in the comment field below. We’ll present as many questions/comments from the audience as possible during the session.
You can also join the chat via Twitter using #CIPDHack and John and Perry will do their best to put tweeted comments and questions to the Hackers.
How to Participate
To watch the live Hangout, please bookmark this page and return to it on July 9 at 7am PT; 10am ET; 3pm GMT (if you miss the live session, you’ll also find the recorded version here).
More about the Hackers

He works with major companies to help enhance the relationship between HR and the business with particular focus on relationships, behaviours and culture. Having helped developed Four Groups' model for this purpose (4G) Bruce helps clients benefit from a new method to optimise people-based issues in a systematic and structured manner.
Harrison Withers has spent his entire career helping companies achieve higher performance by helping them bridge performance gaps through measurement, professional development, and learning solutions. He believes that in many companies there is a lack of trust between business operations, the c-suite, and HR. And that lack of trust is a major barrier to HR functions providing true, meaningful, and recognized value to the business.
David D’Souza is a Strategic HR professional, formerly Head of People Development at MetroBank. He is constantly bewitched by the opportunities that metrics provide to enhance people's ways of working - and consequently business performance. He is passionate about companies' work practices being designed around people - rather than attempting the more challenging feat of redesigning people around work practices.
