If you know me, you know I try to read everything I can get my hands on, and bring you the most interesting, the most insightful and the most relevant. My clients are entrepreneurs, hiring executives and HR professionals who mostly work for small to midsize companies here in the DC metropolitan area.
I write a monthly newsletter as well as this blog, so I’m always on the prowl for interesting material you might find useful, challenging or just fun - something worth talking about.
Hey HR pros, you know what I almost never read? Stuff from our professional association – The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). It just never seems relevant to the issues I work on. Has that been your experience?
