Employee Engagement #TwitterChat 8/14, #HRSocialHour

One of the HR Buzzwords is Employee Engagement. Every organization wants their employees to be engaged, but do we really understand what that means to the organization or how we know whether or not our employees are truly engaged? I think one of the things we forget is that even our most engaged employees aren’t …

#HRSocialHour #TwitterChat July 10

One of my favorite parts of the podcast is the new feature we started recently by asking our guests to provide a question for the next podcast guest. The questions you, our listeners, have come up with have ranged from deep and thoughtful to silly and fun. Jon and I thought it would be fun …

#UnleashAmerica & the CHRO panel – the 21st Century Workforce

I love a good panel discussion. Strong panelists can play off each other, bringing out new insights that the moderator may not have expected. I've enjoyed being a part of these panels and leading them. So it is fitting that the first session I sat in on at Unleash was the CHRO panel, with CHROs …

Returning to In-Person Conferencing

The last big conference I attended in person was in 2019 - Jon and I had been invited to the Embarc Conference by Career Arc. 2019 had been a big year for #HRSocialHour, lots of travel and by the time Embarc came around, I was tired. It was a great conference, and a great way …

#HRSocialHour #TwitterChat 4/24 Delivering Bad News

One thing all HR pros have to do is deliver bad news. Whether you are in talent acquisition (you didn't get the job) or payroll (your check got messed up), bad news comes with the territory. I know I've never really been trained to deliver bad news. The closest I ever came was a training …
