THE BUZZ ON HR

January 4, 2019

2018 was another good year for the BuzzARooney brand.

The Buzz on HR reached its 7th Blogiversary in May. I was taking a little sabbatical from writing following the #BlackBlogsMatter challenge so I didn’t make much fuss about it. But I gotta admit, 7 Years is a really big deal and I’m proud of myself for making it this far … Yet I know […]

Happy New Year!!!! I am excited for all that lies ahead of me for 2015. It is going to be a great year. That doesn’t mean 2014 was a bad one. Although there were several tough personal moments, I have to say it was a really good year. And I couldn’t close the door on […]

I attended a HR luncheon not too long ago. I arrived early and found no one there I knew. Instead of going into introvert mode, I decided to sit down at a table, join the conversation and try to make some new connections. Here’s what I walked in on … “It’s been over a year of […]
