Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend. Come inside! Come inside!
Yes indeed, we’re proud to host the HR Carnival again in 2014. So much great content and great voices in the HR space, and we’re just happy to be part of the community. Let’s jump right in!
We’re proud to be part of the HR community, so you can imagine how pleased I am to get to include a post from Andi Cale at the SHRM Bookstore. Check out the SHRM Store’s Great 8 of 2013, and maybe pick up a couple to read.
Our own David Greyson shares his thoughts on moving from a centralized HR model to a decentralized one, based on a bevy of discussions with practitioners and HR leaders.
We’re high on SaaS as a strategy for both development and for building an HR tech platform. And no one delivers on the topic quite like Naomi Bloom. Please check out her Modest Rant on what SaaS is really all about!
Susan Mazza advises you to Make Room for Your Dreams. Good advice, though I assume she means life and career dreams, not the ones where your face is made of pudding. Unless you really love pudding, I suppose.
For another international viewpoint, we turn to Doug Shaw. Doug actually sent me two posts, Let’s Make the Future and Come as You Are. Unfortunately the rules are you can only send one post, so Doug is disqualified from any prizes that may be awarded. Sorry, Doug.
Next, a post from Stuart Rudner on employment law regarding requiring doctors’ notes from employees. While this is specifically regarding Canadian law, an issue this pervasive should have your attention.
Anyone who knows me knows I am a recovering comic book addict, so it should be no surprise that Patrick Mullarkey caught my attention with his post, What is your Lasso of Truth? I think you’ll dig it too.
That’s the list for this time around. Thanks for joining us, and I hope you keep an eye on all these great voices for ongoing content. And remember, the last one out of the circus has to lock up everything.
