Gosh, I’ve been at DirectEmployers Association for two years already. Shifting from a Fortune 500 company where I directed company-wide employment operations to DirectEmployers, a non-profit association, and working as a telecommuter has been an incredible and rewarding experience. I am simply passionate about our Association’s mission and what we do, and working with Bill Warren and the staff of DirectEmployers has certainly been a highlight of my career. I simply love this job as I get to work with and meet the most amazing and knowledgeable people. I am indeed blessed and grateful to be here. I even get to bring my yellow lab, Murphy, with me to work most every day—that is, when I’m not on the road speaking and consulting.
And now, here I am, entering the blogosphere…hmmm. Are you ready? Consider this quote by George Bernard Shaw, “If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” Well, I think you’re going to like my blog because here you will find lots of great resources and content you can actually use in your day-to-day work in the world of HR. From time to time, you’ll also get “my take” on the happenings affecting HR practitioners. But “my take” is only just that, so I encourage you to share “your take” on these topics as well, so we’ll all have more ideas to take away. I am thrilled to have this forum to share and exchange ideas and resources with you!
