Now if you’re a recruiter in the talent space, you already know that texting is becoming one of the best technologies to actively and passively recruit and communicate with applicants and prospective recruits. It’s fast, cheap and accessible anywhere, at any time. But today’s post is not about using text messaging for recruiting…it’s about avoiding it for your mental health.
I have always been fascinated by the variety of dress codes at work. My early years at work were predominately suites and ties, and most recently, jeans and casual button downs. My thirty-five-year career has seen every type of dress code. And once I started working in HR, I had a say in what was acceptable.
Thanksgiving. It means something different to each and everyone of us in the USA. Beginning in the early 1600s New England, this tradition of giving thanks and gathering family and friends with a feast after a season of farming has become America’s holiday regardless of your personal religion. We treat it as a secular holiday every year on the fourth Thursday of the month and everyone is welcome to participate!
Demographic changes in the workforce are having a profound impact on employers as the number of workers ages 55 and older continues to grow.
Missed the Annual conference this Year? Don’t fret, catch a local SHRM conference in a city near you!
For those who attended and those who wanted to (we hope you do next year!). Here is my quick recap of SHRM18.
First, what and who was Hot:
Adam Grant, the keynoter on Tuesday and guest host with Sheryl Sandberg on Wednesday. He rocked it with great insights and humbling commentary…and he earned a new fan with yours truly.
So here is a last stab at maximizing your 2018 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition experience. Today’s post is about maximizing time at the exposition hall and after hours.
I’m wrapping up three days of great key note presentations, awesome breakout sessions, and a vendor exposition covering a broad offering of Talent software, products and services at the 2018 SHRM Talent Conference & Exposition.
For my last edition of Behind the Scenes at #SHRM18, I caught up with Andrew Morton, director of social engagement at SHRM.
How do you top a lunch with Sean Spicer and Donna Brazile? You bring Gloria Borger on stage to kick off day two at the SHRM Law and Legislative Conference.
Lisa Horn, the SHRM director of congressional affairs, kicked off 2018 Law and Legislative conference by introducing Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. - SHRM CEO, and Michael Aiken- SHRM vice president of government affairs, to an overflow crowd of over 600 excited attendees.
I caught up with Tim Sackett, one of the country’s most prolific bloggers in the HR community and a frequent presenter at SHRM major conferences. This year it includes the SHRM Annual Conference in Chicago and Talent conference in Las Vegas:
Tim, give us a 30 second elevator pitch:
I caught up with Lisa Block, Vice President, Meetings and Conferences for the Society for Human Resource Management. Lisa and her team are responsible for producing the SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition each year. A daunting task to say the least.
Most folks only get out to one and if lucky two conferences a year. Of course, the SHRM Annual each June is the granddaddy of them all and one that folks look forward to attending a year in advance. However, it’s not the only conference on the schedule and you have some great options to choose from, especially if you have an interest in one particular area of HR.
The holiday season has come to an end. You might be all partied out, but your calendar says otherwise. It’s time to start networking again.
I am not just being figurative, I am being literal. HR folks need to update their wardrobes. Let’s be leaders not laggards in corporate fashion and personal branding.
This past week’s power outage at Atlanta’s Hartsfield airport reminded me of the infamous Movie with Steve Martin and John Candy. A holiday classic from 30 yrs. ago. Trying to navigate unforeseen obstacles to get home during the holiday season.
Most of your employees will be traveling somewhere over the next two weeks. Yes, by train, plane, or automobile. Many will be looking to leave a little early, Christmas or New Year’s Eve, as well.
