There’s been a lot of conversation lately about the role of social media in today’s workplace.  While we’ve pretty much established that social media is here to stay, there are still many workplaces that discourage -- if not totally prohibit -- the use of social media (or any internet activity) at work.

January 23, 2013

Some hiring managers and recruiters call it buyer’s remorse.  After a brilliant interview, you hire a candidate that you believe is the perfect fit for the job.  A few weeks later, you’re wondering what happened to the person you originally interviewed.

On January 2, SHRM We Know Next chatted with SHRM's Knowledge Center Operations Manager Margaret Fiester (@SHRMKnowledge) about the topic "Helicopter Parents Descend Upon the Workplace."

January 2, 2013

Helicopter parenting is the new catchphrase for over-parenting in the 21st century, and while the phenomenon manifests itself mostly during school years, it has crossed the workplace border as many moms and dads now manage their children’s careers.

Employers report more frequent parental involvement in the adult child’s job search and continued involvement even after hire.

Is HR sexy? Is it an attractive field of study for college students? Do young professionals view HR as a hot, new profession for the 21st century? 

Here's what the Nextchatters thought...

Is HR sexy?  Is it an attractive field of study for college students?  Do young professionals view HR as a hot, new profession for the 21st century?   The answer to all of these questions is yes.

According to CareerCast, “Employment growth for Human Resources Managers is projected to be a very healthy 21% thru 2020, which is on par with most medical professions, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

On December 5, SHRM We Know Next chatted with Eric B. Meyer (@Eric_B_Meyer) about HR's 2012 Performance Review.

It wasn't so much about the HR Profession's 2012 endeavors. We wanted to know what awesome and amazing things YOU did this year as an HR pro out there on the front lines and in the workplace trenches. 

Nextchatters shared their 2012 victories, inspirations and social media successes. They even shared some tips as we head into 2013.

We all know that a strategic human resources function is critical in today’s competitive global market, but many top-level executives still believe that HR is ineffective and consistently fails to provide value.  You can read all about HR’s continued woes in a new report from The Economist Intelligence Unit/KPMG. They obviously didn’t interview your CEO, who would have told them about all the amazing things you’re doing at your organization.

#NEXTCHAT: The Inescapable World of Office Politics

Office politics.  They’re a reality in the workplace and a necessary skill.  Whether you know it or not, you engage in office politics, every day, and they are impossible to avoid.  Even if you choose not to interact with others, you are still engaging in politics and it’s probably not helping your career.

On October 31, SHRM We Know Next chatted with Sharlyn Lauby and Eric Chester about "What Does Work Ethic Look Like?"

Is it 90% perspiration and 10% Red Bull?  Does it depend on how your parents raised you and does it look different according to your generation?  What if you have a solid work ethic, but you're in a toxic workplace environment?  Regardless of how Nextchatters defined work ethic, they agreed that a positive attitude and a solid work ethic are connected, and that great employees possess both.

On October 24, SHRM @weknownext chatted with several working moms and dads about how they juggle work and family. A few employers (and a former CEO) even jumped into the chat and offered their views on the importance of providing a supportive environment and plenty of workplace flexibility. In case you missed it, here are all the great tweets from the chat:

 

October 24, 2012

Every day, millions of working moms live by routines.  The alarm rings.  You wake the kids, feed them, make lunches, rush them to daycare or school, and then maybe hit the coffee shop on the way to the office. 

Later it’s shopping, errands, dinner, homework … and then 12 hours later – Rinse.  Repeat. 

For most working moms, the constant merry-go-round is a source of great stress that can result in discouragement, bouts of anxiety, and even physical illness.  When mom’s burned out, everyone suffers.
