If someone were to ask you to write what you believe your "personal brand" is today, what would you write? Are you excited about it? Does it really describe your character, personality and passions?

Raising awareness about the human resource profession is one of SHRM’s most important missions, and the 2012 Presidential election provides an attentive audience of policy makers and business leaders with whom we wish to communicate.

On August 15, SHRM We Know Next invited special guest Steve Boese to chat about the topic:  "Is HR Technology Really Making Our Jobs Easier?"

The informative conversation was directed at helping human resource professionals understand and make sense of the rapidly changing HR technology scene -- a daunting challenge for many HR pros who have a thousand other issues on their plate.

There is no doubt that HR Technology plays an increasingly important role inside our organizations today. Whether simple, in-house developed tools for tracking employees in a very small organization, more complex and comprehensive ‘enterprise grade’ systems in use by most large organizations, or any of the myriad of newer HR technology solutions that are deployed via the web, in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model - the influence and importance of workplace technology continues to grow.

On August 1, SHRM We Know Next invited special guest Jason Lauritsen to chat about "Employee Engagement -- Are you Listening to the Right Employees?"

The lively conversation addressed the definition of engagement, the link to talent and entitlement, and whether engagement was the responsibility of the employer or the employee.  Should organizations allow employees to build the surveys, and do employees who question the anonymity of the surveys provide truthful answers?

On July 25,  SHRM We Know Next invited special guests Ryan Estis and Seth Mattison to chat about Next Generation Leadership. 

While Nextchatters were divided on whether the generational stereotypes hold true, they did agree that organizations will need to foster a culture of mentorship, where both sides truly believe they can learn from each other.  

It's not about who's right, wrong, better or worse.  We're different, and we need to leverage those differences to drive results. 

In case you missed it, here are all the great tweets from the chat:

Today’s workplace is experiencing a revolution. Technology and the introduction of new methods of communicating, networking and collaborating have changed the way we do business and have created new challenges for leadership.

It's also a transformative era for the human resources profession. We’ve entered a unique epoch in history where four generations are intersecting in the workplace. Each carries with it deeply held convictions, attitudes, ideas and expectations about the value and meaning of work.

On June 20 as #Nextchat invited special guest Joe Gerstandt to join us for an informative discussion on “what’s next” for Diversity and Inclusion in the 21st century.

Diversity and Inclusion.  We’ve seen it grow and thrive in our organizations. It’s evolved from understanding and embracing differences to leveraging those differences to promote innovation.  A diverse workforce drives the success of our organizations.
 
But what worked 10 years ago doesn’t necessarily work today. The United States is undergoing major demographic changes, and technology and social media are making a global workplace the new reality.

We Know Next conducted an eye-opening #NextChat discussion on May 23 about "What’s Holding Women Back" with special guest Laurie Ruettimann.

May 24, 2012

According to the latest research from McKinsey & Company, while 53 percent of new workers entering the workforce are female, only 3 percent of CEOs are women. Complicating this statistic are individuals and organizations who limit women’s ability to advance in their careers due to outdated attitudes and limited --  if not zero -- workplace flexibility.

Workplace flexibility is replacing the one-size-fits-all, 9-to-5 way of working in a growing number of organizations.

What’s motivating companies to consider new ways of making work “work?” And what impact does giving employees more choice over how, when and where work gets done have on workplaces and the bottom-line?

There’s no denying that social mediais changing the way we work.
