Open Mic Night – HR Edition.

Calling all HR Lovers, Players and Haters. The time has come to embrace the digital era and take our profession to YouTube. After digging through trench HR jobs across the U.S. and Mexico I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly  about our trade. So I did what any good HR Pro would do… I wrote a poem. Then produced a song about it. My vision of this song is to inspire you to think. Maybe even laugh. Okay, definitely laugh.

By putting my thoughts in song form, I am also able to connect with some of the more auditory and visual learners out in the space as well. You’re welcome.

I have to give a quick shout out to t

he vocals and music for this song is by Chad Evans. Thank you Chad for turning my words into a song – you have hidden talent. Your employer or someone cooler will figure that out one day!

Enough ramble. Check it out for yourself: The HR Brotha Song… (Email subscribers click through to see.)

Share it with others if you like it. Tell me it sucks in the comments if you don't. Either way, I will keep going for another day.
