    • Does Diversity Plateau Inclusion?

      Diversity & Inclusion has become a catch phrase for an ongoing quest to achieve equitable balance in the workplace.  While the word Diversity seems to lead the charge, it does not always fulfill the mission of providing equitable consideration for all. Diversity can be misleading. It suggests equal consideration for all populations and communities. However, true diversity cannot exist without Inclusion. A closet full of various colored shoes is diverse. Nevertheless, if all of the shoes are high heel pumps the collection will be useless to a construction worker.

      NASHRM started off the 2018 year with a BANG!

    • 2014 Fall Hill Visit

      On September 11th, 2014 ALSHRM Legislative Directors assembled to storm the Hill on topics that SHRM has highlighted as relevant to our profession.  I've told y'all before this trip is awesome. Seeing your Representatives in DC is vastly different from seeing them in your hometown turf. DC just feels powerful, ya know? It is also a lot of fun for a misplaced city girl such as myself, but I digress. So what did SHRM deem important for this trip? Hang on to your seats folks, because for the first time in about five or six trips it was NOT E-Verify!

    • How Do you Become An HR Influencer? (#SHRM14)

      I was lucky enough to attend SHRM 2014.  I always look forward to the SHRM national conference because it is a great way to connect with other HR pros, while learning from some of the best and brightest HR thinkers in the world today.  As I have grown in my career, my focus at these conferences has shifted away from learning the day to day HR functions to how HR can influence and assist the company’s executive team in reaching company goals.

    • People Will Amaze You

      HR Professionals are all so frequently confronted with striking situations and we so often chat among ourselves about “unbelievable” people stuff.  Of course, it’s not really “unbelievable” at all, because we humans contain depths that are never plumbed, so to speak.  And when we hear these stories, we immediately believe them because we’ve all encountered the same, although maybe extremely different, craziness.  Sometimes it’s whimsical, like the person who once made an appointment with me to talk about the buffet plans when I was wi
