Last year I read about a super bloom in California.

This super bloom came after years of drought, and if not for the fact that this very topic came up in conversation several times in the context of work, it would have just been one of those unique stories that got buried in a year full of them.

Great HR doesn’t happen by accident. It is a journey, a work in progress, and is always evolving. At the base of every successful HR function are the philosophical building blocks that support its work and that make up the bedrock of a great organization. A healthy HR function is an essential component of a healthy and thriving workplace.

I’ve been a lifelong member of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM): it has more than 285,000 members, many of whom have become friends. One of the Society’s key themes is the notion of giving back to the profession: in this I’ve been inspired by many great HR practitioners.

4 principles of energy:

#1. People have energy. Lousy organizations drain it.

#2. Energy flows toward meaningful action. When people lose energy they’re doing things that aren’t fulfilling.

#3. Energy increases with clarity and forward movement. Sustained confusion drains.

#4. Leaders impact energy. Successful leaders protect, nurture, and ignite energy inside others. Foolish leaders suck the life out of people.

When you think about the work you do in HR, it's not always easy to think of the higher sense of purpose it brings or the value it imparts to the world. Yet, when given the chance to explore the vision you want for your profession, it's definitely higher-purpose time.

What motivates workers to seek a new job and what makes them want to stay? The answer is deceptively simple. Workers want companies to provide them with fair compensation and benefits, workplace perks and development opportunities that help advance their careers.  In other words, invest in your employees and they will be invested in your firm.
