From August - December, I concluded that list when I hit 500. There was something about completing that list that was fulfilling …

Ageism In the WorkPlace #HRSocialHour #TwitterChat October 23

Ageism is one of the most unfair paradoxes in the labor market: People put in decades of hard work and then find themselves penalized for having done so. Every recruiter knows this story.

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?
