Just Because You Can Do Something, Does It Mean You Should?

6 questions to ask yourself to determine if your positions can be done remotely. For years, the pervading attitude was that work was to be completed in a central location, with central supplies. People may have wondered why they needed to complete their work at this one location, but most didn’t question it. Work was …

Happy New Year #TwitterChat #HRSocialHour January 9 7 pm ET

This weekend will kick off the first #HRSocialHour chat of 2022! It's kind of nice to have a pattern to fall back on.

#HRSocialHour 2021 #TwitterChats in Review

Jon and I have hosted over 70 Twitter Chats since June 2017, which seems like a lot and not a lot at the same time. We started out monthly and then in 2020, Jon suggested moving to twice a month -- to which I wasn't too sure about. Twice the chats plus our recording schedule …

#Top5HRReads (and listens to) for January 15

Let's fix job postings! Keristen Greggs spoke with Katrina Kibben about red flags job seekers should look for in job postings. And at the same time, these are things employers can look for to improve their own postings. If there was one constant in 2020, it was change! And the best way to help staff …

#HRSocialHour Twitter Chat #SelfCare 8/23

We are really good at taking care of others. But most of us are not as good as taking care of ourselves. Especially now. The lines between work and home life are more blurry than ever. And working from home isn't really all that great, even for those who have been working at home and …

#Top5HRReads (and listen to) for August 7

Took me a little longer, but mostly to narrow down the content this week! First, with Joe Biden about to announce his VP pick, I highly recommend the “That’s the Ticket” 3 part series from Crooked Media. The hosts go through the VP selection/vetting process, the changes that have occurred in recent years (mostly so …
