Creative Alignments and Polsinelli Present at Boulder Startup Week 2017 

Top Authorities Gamify HR, Talent Planning with “Cards Against HR-manity” Presentation


Leaders from Creative Alignments, a pay-for-effort recruiting firm upending the traditional industry model, and Polsinelli are sharing HR best practices and pitfalls during Boulder Startup Week, May 15-19. Boulder Startup Week is an independent, free, five-day event that celebrates the city’s entrepreneurial and startup community. 

Creative Alignments Founder Peggy Shell and Labor and Employment Attorney Gillian Bidgood from Polsinelli will present “Cards Against HR-manity,” an interactive learning exploration based on the popular card game. Together they’ll share information and answer questions critical to startups and entrepreneurs related to hiring, HR and employment law in a way that is fun, memorable and engaging. 

“I believe that people are one of the most valuable assets of a startup,” Bidgood said. “That’s why I devote my professional life to helping companies create and maintain cultures that foster creativity, productivity, and smart growth. This also involves guiding startups to identify and resolve challenges before they become employee relations issues or legal disputes. I regularly speak to entrepreneurs and business leaders at events like Boulder Startup Week to help our startup community succeed.”

The “Cards Against HR-manity: Q&A on Hiring, HR & What (Not) to Do” presentation is on Tuesday, May 16 at 11 a.m. at The Riverside, 1724 Broadway in Boulder.
