In 10 year’s leading and working with over 100 global talent acquisition teams I’ve found there is only one thing more powerful than your resume: your professional network.  I’ve playfully dubbed mine my, “council of elders” and naturally one of the first questions I get from professionals at all levels of HR when I speak at conferences is: How do I build my own.   Here’s what I recommend.

If you are an HR professional, there is an excellent chance you have been told to warm up to "big data" as a means of performing your job. These large collections of information are increasingly used to reveal behaviors and societal trends, and they are heavily relied upon for recruiting tactics, measuring employee engagement and countless other business operations.

It's been just shy of a month since SHRM16 took over our nation's capital but nearly a month is fairly late for getting a "post-SHRM16" blog written.

To my credit, a lot has happened since that time; likewise, I have been mentally occupied so it was difficult for me to write much. But, better late than never and today, I hope this is a worthwhile read for you.

Dear SHRM Members,

On behalf of all of us here at SHRM, I want to share our deepest sympathies for the victims, families and loved ones whose lives have been so tragically and profoundly impacted by Sunday’s nightclub shooting in Orlando.  Words cannot fully express our sorrow.  As President Obama has said this was an attack on all Americans. 

SHRM has deep ties to the Orlando community as we’ve been fortunate to develop personal relationships with many amazing people - well-beyond our many SHRM members.
