Sh!t Your Professor Says, an #HRSocialHour #TwitterChat

So so so excited that our favorite Canadian, Melanie Peacock, is co-hosting the Twitter Chat 10/25. As she is in academia, what better topic than to talk about HR education?? And the timing is perfect! Lately, I've started researching better ways to get the right candidates to the right job and I honestly believe we …

Recruiter Games: a Procurious Post

Photo of character Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games movie If you have ever played a game with a small child, you know it can be frustrating because they seem to change the rules halfway through. My daughter is always making up new cards for Uno [she wanted to create a card that made us switch hands …

#Top5HRReads (& Listens to) for October 16

This week, I'm starting with 3 of my own! First, I want to share the very first watch party that #HRSocialHour hosted. Anne and I were to go to WorkHuman Live in May 2020 to host an #HRWonderWomen panel. We had 3 awesome ladies lined up to join us. Alas, coronavirus had other plans and …

Be Nice … Until It’s Time to Not Be Nice.

For a few years now, there has been a call for "civility" or to just "be nice." I'm seeing a lot of people asking for civility, specifically in politics (we could also go down the road of keeping politics out of policies, but I'm not quite prepared for that today). But there is a definite …

Upward! #HRSocialHour #TwitterChat with @Fuel50

When my girls were in preschool, their standard answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up" was "Bigger!" Their answers changed a bit as they grew: butterfly entomologist, zoologist, art teacher, life guard, architect, something in film, hair stylist, YouTube star, Spider-man. All good choices. I'm sure you have your own …

#HRSocialHour Twitter Chat: Neuroscience & HR

What does HR have to do with Neuroscience? Is this something we should be paying attention to? I'm going to say Yes. Good HR isn't just about implementing policies that follow the letter of the law (and let's be honest, the law is the minimum. We can, and should, do more). But neuroscience can be …

#Top5HRReads (& Listens to!) September 18

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away today (9/18). The 2nd woman on the US Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg became a force as her seniority grew. Her influence, her strength, her dissents. I became a huge fan of hers in recent years. While her voice will be missed, I am glad she was here …

Back to School: #HRSocialHour Twitter Chat

It's that time of year, even if you aren't doing it yourself or have kids doing it, we all typically associate September with Back to School. And as most of our HR Community is very pro-learning, formal or informal, Jon & I thought this would be a great time to talk about formal education opportunities. …
