#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 …

Side Gigs #HRSocialHour #TwitterChat 5/8

If you are here, you know that I have a couple of side gigs. The podcast and Twitter chat have been a part of my life for so long now that it is sometimes hard to remember what life was like before them. I wouldn't change this time for anything! As I write, memories from …

#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 …

It’s the Great Resignation, Charlie Brown!

In “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” Linus spends the entire show in the pumpkin patch, waiting for the Great Pumpkin to show up. He believes that because he has the “most sincere” pumpkin patch, the Great Pumpkin will simply show up and deliver toys. Now, I don’t know if there was any campaigning or …

#HRSocialHour #TwitterChat 3/13 7 pm

It's no secret that I enjoy working from home. For years I have believed that talent acquisition could be done remotely. And not just talent acquisition. Many jobs can be done from anywhere, but employers like to have everyone in one place for "culture" or "engagement." So when covid sent most office workers out of …
