Carnival of HR – Your Break From The Summer Heat

Yowza! It is blazing hot here in Ohio this summer! We are on week two without rain…and when you live near Lake Erie that is definitely something to celebrate!

Some take a look at the heat wave and complain but I embrace the heat. I soak it up with the hope that during the winter the memories will keep me warm. Have I mentioned we have cold winters here? Um yea check out my instagram.

Anyway, you did not come here for my musings of the climate of Northeast Ohio. You came here for fantastic content in the space of HR, Leadership and a host of other wonderful HR topics. And this week did not fail to deliver with the future workplace and diversity and inclusion being hot topics. Not to worry, we also have fantastic posts on technology, recognition, resignation and leadership.
