Vancouver’s HR Tech Group is now Tech and People Network, or TAP Network for short.
Eager to move away from the stale term human resources (HR), the association’s new name marks their 30th anniversary.
TAP Network provides 750+ members across Canada with access to tech sector data, resources, industry experts and an inclusive peer community that is driving innovation, collaboration and results.
Through their programs and events, they foster peer-to-peer connections, enabling learning and knowledge sharing and strengthening the Canadian tech sector.
“We’re making this change because our community is evolving and so are we. Along with the majority of Canadian tech companies, we’re moving away from the term human resources,” said Stephanie Hollingshead, CEO TAP Network.
“Our community is becoming a national one, and that’s exciting for us. We experienced tremendous growth in 2021 with companies joining from multiple provinces and with expanding support and reach across Canada, we believe this is the right time to rebrand. As a network of People and Culture professionals in tech, we wanted a name that showcases that network.”
TAP Network’s 2022 expansion plans include launching an Eastern Edition of Tech Talent North, Canada’s Conference for People and Culture in Tech. Tech Talent North: Western Edition will take place this spring in Vancouver.
TAP Network’s Diversity in Tech Dashboard Report and its annual Tech Salary Survey, which has provided critical industry data for over 25 years, are also expanding nationally in 2022.
