A New Year, A New Event… #Excellence15

The New Year has been in full swing for several weeks now, and in my estimation that means it’s not too early to begin thinking about conference season.  Though usually I don’t start making conference plans until closer to Spring, this year I’m kicking things off a little earlier with Brandon Hall Group’s 2105 HCM…read more

Human resources is the driving component in any organization. HR professionals deal with the day-to-day tasks of every aspect of every employee’s job, and the task list is endless.

Technology and Data: Friend, Foe, Or…

I often draw inspiration for posts from articles in Time Magazine.  It’s fun at times to examine a trend or phenomenon in the world or popular culture and try to relate it back to human resources, business, or the workplace.  In the past I’ve opined about women as breadwinners and mindfulness in the workplace to…read more
