To Certify Or Not To Certify….That Is The Question For HR Today

Kelly Dingee HR, Kelly Dingee, SHRM 3 Comments

For years I’ve worked on the HR fringe as a sourcer.  And I say the fringe, because sourcing is truly a subset of recruiting which is a subset of HR. I didn’t start my career with the intent of being a sourcer, I actually started focused on being an HR generalist, intent on eventually being an HR Business Partner.  Fresh …

Can We Replace LinkedIn? We Could…We Really Really Could….

Kelly Dingee Kelly Dingee, Recruiting, Social Media, Social Networking, Sourcing

LinkedIn is a constant in recruiting conversations.  Are you on it? Do you really network? Use the groups? Post jobs? Do you source on it? Still? Is it gone yet? What about Microsoft? Will they kill it? Use all the data? Make it better? Make it worse?  Chicken Little is spinning out of control with the constant LinkedIn rhetoric. I’m …

Seems like everyone is due for a year of yes.  Shonda Rimes had one and she’s ridiculously creative and successful.  Bethenny Frankel decided to come from A Place of Yes a few years back. I decided at the beginning of 2016 that it was time for me to have a year of yes.  Why? Let me backtrack for you.  2 1/2 …

It’s SHRM Membership Renewal Time!

Laurie Ruettimann Laurie Ruettimann, SHRM

Hey, everybody. It’s SHRM membership renewal time! I just renewed my SHRM membership solely because I like Steve Browne, a newly coronated elected board member. My membership lapsed back in 2013 because my employer, LFR LLC, doesn’t reimburse employees for dues. My CEO doesn’t feel like the membership adds a lot of value to our organization, either. But I never …

HR Fatty > Make Some Tech Decisions And Take Action

Dawn Burke Dawn Burke, HR, HR Tech, HR Technology, Selection, SHRM

My HR and leader-friends, I am going to make a bold statement. I think technology scares the hell out of us. That fear is spooking us into lethargic, gooey submission. Our inaction is making our teams fat. Worst thing an HR pro can do regarding HR tech is nothing. You create value in taking action. I attended the #SHRM15 conference …

When I was at the SHRM National Conference last week, I gave a hug to someone and they jokingly said it they “could cross it off their bucket list!” I responded with, “That’s what I do, change lives with hugs!” The concept of bucket lists and HR pros got me thinking what a true bucket list of an HR person …

I am just home from Las Vegas. My meetings coincided with the SHRM Annual Conference, and I was able to meet human resources leaders from around the world who talked about attending sessions about executive compensation, defined benefit pension plans, and social media. You know who I didn’t meet? Talent acquisition professionals under the age of thirty. There’s a quirky …

John Whitaker Audacious Ideas, Bad HR, John Whitaker, SHRM

Like many of you, I’ve received plenty of collateral material inviting me to the SHRM National Conference in Las Vegas. Let’s put aside for a minute the temperature in Nevada in late June, and instead focus on the the world-renowned speakers booked for the event. First of all, it seems the ladies in our profession are in for a real treat …
