So you are probably wondering where I’ve been for the past couple days…I took a long weekend to go see my family back home in Cleveland. It was a great trip and the traffic wasn’t all that bad either. I had the best of intentions to get up a link yesterday to a guest post I wrote for another site but had some difficulties with the new iPad (check out my twitter stream for more details) and waffling WiFi on the Pennsylvania turnpike.
So what and where was I writing yesterday? I was over at Project Social HR, here is the official spiel:
Started in the Fall of 2010, Project: Social HR is a community in-the-making for Human Resource professionals interested in social media. The purpose of PSHR will be twofold. One will be to encourage and support HR practitioners’ growth in the use of social media (SM) tools and strategies. The second purpose is to provide a forum for diverse points of view on HR and business related topics.What we’re looking for are Human Resource professionals who have opinions about what they do, how they do it and, through their content and connections, want to contribute to the advancement of the profession. You can do this by being a contributor to the PSHR blog, creating content to post on the site. Or you can be a part of the mentoring program, either as a mentor or mentee.
I wrote a post titled My Confession, here is a teaser:
Shhhh…I work in Human Resources and I love social media.
It sounds ridiculous to say something like that in such dramatic tones, doesn’t it? But the truth of the matter is that there are many HR people out there who distrust social media. Some think that employees will play Farmville all day, others can’t understand why you would want employees being brand ambassadors: “Isn’t that what you pay your marketing department for?”
So I know you totally want to go check it out, here is the link: My Confession
