Ordinary Things

It's been a rough couple of weeks at my house. I'm trying to take comfort, find blessings in those little things in life that make life worthwhile. I asked friends on Twitter to share their favorite ordinary things and of course, was not disappointed. Here are a few of my favorite responses. https://twitter.com/Paula4Harvey/status/1242471131174637568 https://twitter.com/traciespon/status/1242419182186237953 https://twitter.com/WendyMSHRMPHR/status/1242512624727797760

Be Prepared! An #HRSocialHour Chat about Emergency Preparedness

This is definitely a new era we are living in. Many of us have been through emergency situations - either brought about by weather or financial situations. Very few of us have been through a situation that is affecting the entire world at the same time, at the same level of intensity. It's a scary …

#HRSocialHour & #BlackBlogsMatter – the Crossover Chat You Never Knew You Needed

After a long weekend of selling cookies (seriously, over 2 days, we spent 8 hours at Wal-mart & 2 hours at Runnings. Tired doesn't begin to cover it!), Rocky & I hit our favorite craft beer tasting room with some cookies to pair up (always good). So I was able to participate in this wonderful …

It's #BlackHistoryMonth and the last year of the #BlackBlogsMatter challenge hosted by the awesome Sarah Morgan. What better time to have Sarah co-host the Twitter Chat???

The Good Project

One of my favorite shows of all time recently came to an end. Sooner than I wanted, but they went out on their own terms and left us wanting more rather than wondering why they were still going, milking the story for more than it was worth (The Simpsons, I'm looking at you). The Good …

The Lie of the “Best Person for the Job”

This post was originally shared on HRD Connect. Anyone in the talent acquisition space knows the phrase “Best Person for the Job.” We’ve been asked to find this person. We’ve heard this phrase as a reason to keep the search open. We’ve also used this phrase when turning other candidates down. We laugh at all …

What is Wendy Listening To? #PodcastingLife

I’ve added about 2 hours of drive time to my day in the last 15 months, 4-5 days a week. That’s 8 hours a week, 32 hours a month, 1600+ hours a year. That’s a lot of listening time. I haven’t listened to the radio in years. I have some music I’ll listen to, but …
