If you are an HR professional, the owner of a small business, or if you manage a team of people, then you probably won’t turn down great, solid people management advice when it comes your way. And what better way to get fantastic daily snippets of expert advice than Twitter?

Here are the 5 incredible HR Twitter accounts we think you should be following, chosen for their quality of information and positions as experts.

1. HR Grapevine

Let’s start with a good, staple HR Twitter account that you should follow if you want to get the latest news and developments from the world of HR: HR Grapevine.

@HRGrapevine is the Twitter account of HR Grapevine, the leading UK magazine for HR and Talent Management. Follow this HR Twitter account for daily news and insights to do with HR, compensation & benefits, learning & development and resourcing.

2. Rob Briner

Constantly looking to challenge “The Norm”, evidence-based management psychologist Rob Briner is a professor at the University of Bath, and in 2012 was included in HR Most Influential’s Top 25 list of most influential HR thinkers in the UK.

@Rob_Briner has a slightly jaded tone, and doesn’t care much for hiding his opinion. Perhaps his Tweets will make you laugh, maybe they will make you cry. Nonetheless, they are both powerful and informative, and explore a slightly alternative approach to people management, supported by solid research and compelling evidence.

3. HR Curator

This HR Twitter account is run by Dave Millner, and delivers carefully-curated HR content daily, to help you keep your finger on the pulse without having to do the delving yourself.

With more than 8,000 followers and climbing, @HRCurator is steadily growing in popularity throughout the UK’s HR community, and his focus is to improve awareness of important HR topics to help HR departments deliver more value.

4. PiQube

PiQube is a first-of-its-kind intelligent hiring tool, which combines data science with human judgement to help you make great, efficient hiring decisions.

@Pi_Qube is still a fairly fresh Twitter account, with less than 1,000 followers, but it’s definitely worth a follow for anybody working in HR or recruitment – they regularly post links to interesting and though-provoking articles, on topics ranging from the kind of people you should be hiring, to the kind of technology that will help you do it.

5. Jibe

Finally, we have Jibe. This is the Twitter account of Jibe.com, a company providing recruitment software that is used by many of the world’s biggest companies.

Why follow @Jibe on Twitter? Well, if you’re passionate about attracting and hiring the perfect candidates to drive your business forward, you’ll find that Jibe shares tons of content to help you do this. Topics include candidate experience, recruitment strategy and HR technology.
