On Sunday, July 23rd, my #walkingbuddyforlife Jon & I hosted the first ever #HRSocialHour. My thought was we might get a few people in our HR Twitter circle to attend & have a nice little social chat. I knew I would be on the road home from our family trip to the Black Hills, but didn’t think it would be an issue, I’d be able to keep up. Um yeah, about that …
- 405 #HRSocialHour mentions
- 392 from the US
- 11 from Canada
- 2 from India!

I just love this! These connections are REAL! For a person who used to dread “networking opportunities,” I’m loving these — and not just because I can do this in my jammies. It’s getting me out of my comfort zone and helping me to realize that I DO have something to offer to the greater HR community. So, let’s keep this going!
Jon & I talked and have scheduled the next #HRSocialHour for Sunday August 27, 7 pm EDT. We don’t have a set topic or questions yet, but will get those out once we figure it out.
Hope you can join us!
