We're joined by Dave Ryan, Director of Human Resources for Mel-O-Cream Donuts in Springfield, IL. We talk about a time before Federal Express, getting management to buy into using social media for recruiting, and how he came to be known as "The HR Czar."
HR professionals need to have a presence in the profession, and a fantastic way to do that is to be involved in the daily conversations that take place on social media. Blogging, tweeting and podcasting are great ways to engage others, but how do you know what to say? How do you “find your voice” as an HR professional?
About three months ago, I was invited to a meeting with some of our marketing gurus and newest Field Services Director (FSD) – and when I say newest, Callie’s been here for 10 months and is practically a seasoned SHRM employee at this point. But I’ll get back to her later.

Peter Drucker, management guru deluxe, advises that all staff workers spend time in operational positions. He says specifically:
In 10 year’s leading and working with over 100 global talent acquisition teams I’ve found there is only one thing more powerful than your resume: your professional network. I’ve playfully dubbed mine my, “council of elders” and naturally one of the first questions I get from professionals at all levels of HR when I speak at conferences is: How do I build my own. Here’s what I recommend.
Every industry has its own buzzwords and catchphrases, and the human resources profession is no different. It has hundreds.
Whether to inspire and build morale or to create a common language among peers, these HR expressions have had a long history and have served a purpose. While some of these phrases are ready for retirement, others need to be tweaked to reflect HR’s evolving role in the new world of work.
As I navigate my 10th year in the Human Capital Management space, I honestly don't believe there has ever been a more exciting time in our industry! Technology is vibrant and scale-able, workforce engagement has become of paramount strategic importance and new leadership minds are empowering HR Professionals to lead the charge in improving business process.
