When a fellow HR Blogger invites you to be a guest on their blog, the answer is YES.  EVERY. TIME.  Wendy has thought this through, and she even provided writing prompts!  While there were plenty to pick from, one resonated with me:

“If you could change one thing about HR (as in you have a magic wand), what would you change? What steps can we take today to make that change happen?”

At Google, change is constant. But how we managed and messaged change wasn’t always working. So we developed a simple framework to rethink reorgs and it starts by asking “Do we even need this change?”

There is no single way that Google manages internal change, like a reorganization. But we’ve been piloting a new approach that has been used in different parts of the company, impacting thousands of Googlers.

It's the second part of our conversations with several of the international SHRM18 Bloggers. We spoke with Mofota Sefali (Pan-African as she describes herself), Anish Aravind from India, and Renee Robson from New Zealand, living in Australia!

I need to extend my sincere appreciation to Mary Kaylor & Andrew Morton from SHRM for the invitation to be part of the Blogger team and the opportunity to attend SHRM 18 National Conference & Expo. Their passion and dedication to the profession is evident in all they do to support and strengthen the HR community.

I consistently see organizations with unnecessary barriers slowing their D&I efforts down or blocking them altogether. Want to move forward? Here are six opportunities to consider. I will unpack each of these further in following posts:

At the #SHRM18 conference I wandered around the exposition hall and spoke with many of the exhibitors. I specifically asked several of them if they were willing to share why their company is a great place to work. Kronos is one that took me up on the challenge and the following is what I learned:

What does last week’s Supreme Court decision outlawing mandatory union fees mean for me?

The law doesn’t affect private employers, so if you’re associated with a private employer simply carry on, there’s nothing to see here.

I love the energy of the Expo Hall and this year’s Expo Hall at 2018 SHRM Annual Conference in Chicago did not disappoint. I did some due diligence and made an Expo Hall plan so that I could have some targeted time. Before the conference, I shared some tips on how to work the expo hall like a pro, and I wanted to share how following those suggestions lead me to some interesting products, services, and technologies.

I can’t believe it’s been just over 2 weeks since the annual SHRM National conference was here in my hometown of Chicago!  I’m naturally a very introverted person, so when I attend conferences or big sessions like this I get pretty wiped out; and after reading this post you’ll see why!  I even needed to take a few days off to completely unplug and go camping, just to let the mind recharge.

I’m still recovering from SHRM18. There were so many memorable experiences that it’s hard to capture them all. I had the chance to see old friends, meet some folks who’ve I’ve only known through social media and also meet a ton of new people. If you haven’t gathered my focus yet, the SHRM Annual Conference, and any HR event for that matter, is about the people.

I’ve just returned from SHRM18, and this was one of the best SHRM Annual Conferences I’ve attended. It was the largest and most attended in SHRM’s history, and yet it felt very accessible and easy to maneuver. The attendees were geeked whether they were in sessions, browsing the SHRM store, enjoying the keynotes or taking in the wonder of Chicago.

Are you hiring interns this summer?  If so, you need to understand how the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) requirement to offer health coverage to full-time employees applies to interns.
