#HRSocialHour Chat: HR Knowledge

In order to be a strong HR professional, we need to keep learning. We need to stay on top of local, state & federal laws and policies; we need to know the trends and data and how these affect our companies. We cannot do this if we stay in our own little bubbles. You know …

#HRSocialHour: What we learned

We had a great chat Sunday evening (7/24) and I know I had a hard time keeping up with the tweets. Jon & I LOVED seeing everyone there. I wanted to share some of the takeaways from #SHRM18 and #NotatSHRM18 that some of our participants shared. You can see the full twitter feed at this …

#SHRM18 #NotatSHRM18 #HRSocialHour #HashtagOverload

SHRM was a whirlwind of information and connections! My favorite part this year was definitely all the connections I made. I did learn a little bit as well, but I do love the networking and getting that IRL hug (or side hug based on preference) [which honestly is weird for me because I'm not a …

#HRSocialHour: Employee Recognition

The big HR buzz word right now, or at least for the past few years, has been "Employee Engagement." The best way, in my opinion, to start your journey in employee engagement is employee recognition. Employee recognition can be tricky as it is dependent upon the employee's preferences. Want to recognize that introverted, shy employee …

Could we really compete? Yes. Yes we can. We had quite a few first …

#HRSocialHour: Innovation in the Workplace

The workplace has been asked to do more with less for a long time now - as long as I've been in the workplace anyway. I think part of it is as we move away from a production-based work environment to a more thought-based work environment, production is harder to quantify, harder to measure. We …

#HRSocialHour: Side Gigs

I found our timing to be very serendipitous on our topic for February. Jon and I selected our monthly topics last December, before the #SHRM18Bloggers list came out and now we really know a lot of our #HRSocialHour folks are also part of this team, which means they kind of have a side gig. Typically, …

#HRSocialHour We are Thankful!

What a fantastic conversation we had to close out the long Thanksgiving Holiday weekend (at least for those of us in the US). I really enjoyed spending a little extra time with my #HRSocialHour / #HRTribe on Twitter. Jon & I have a few things brewing for 2018, so we are so thankful for everyone …
