My poor laptop was compromised and riddled with horrible viruses so I’ve been unable to write the past couple weeks. Falling behind on projects and deadlines both frustrated me immensely and taught me some things. More on that next week. Valentine’s Day is approaching! I’m looking forward to a little romantic getaway with my sweetie and […]

We all have bad days at work. We all have people we don’t like working with. We all have things we don’t like to do. We all have ideas we think are stupid but we have to  follow through with plan anyway. And sometimes these things all converge together on the same day, time and […]

I am amazed that I’ve officially been blogging for 6-months … and I’m even more amazed at the amount of support I’ve received and all the great people I’ve met and all the new things I’ve learned in this short amount of time. This experience is everything I thought it would be and so much […]

Having a career in HR is tough. We spend most of our time in battling for priority, resources, time and voice in the organizations we belong to. Then we have to defend the policies, practices and decisions of the same organization to employees and enforcement entities. HR professionals are under-trained, over-worked and often burn out […]

Going “political” on a human resources blog is always risky. Politics is polarizing and HR is supposed to be neutral so any mention of such topics could alienate readers. However, sometimes an issue pops up that just screams too be discussed. And that’s why I found myself inspired by this post from Chris Fields at Cost […]

I attended a workshop last month on Worker’s Compensation. Yes, I learned some things — but what I remember most was the attire of the female presenters. It immediately took me back to an article from Women of HR’s Krista Francis about frumpy women in the workplace. One of the women was definitely a frump. […]
