140 Blogs on HR and Recruiting #truManchester #ConnectingHR

I recently commented on a blog post on XpertHR from Michael Carty about UK HR Bloggers. My comment related to: 1: What constitutes an HR blog 2: The lack of HR Practitioners blogging (I don’t know more than 10 globally) 3: Why that might be. It provoked quite a discussion. I’m all in favour of […]

In recognition of “International talk like a pirate day”, I’m going to do a different type of post. It’s also a Sunday and you need something different. Normal service will be resumed on monday with a business post announcing the Blog Squad. Theres a big question going around that is causing debate throughout the Pubs […]

What I’m Learning From #Blogchat

Most Sundays I join in with #blogchat. If you’re in my twitter stream, it goes out at 2.00a.m. and although it’s scheduled for an hour, can go on from anything up to 2 hours more. Despite the time, I feel as if I’ve been to blogging college, and hope it is reflected in my blogs. […]

Clarity

My last post created quite a reaction and a few comments. For clarity, I want to state my views with regards the post. 1: I still have total belief in Social Recruiting as a method of generating candidates and filling vacancies. Nothing has changed in this respect, and I don’t believe that social recruiting is […]

About the conversation?

Every day, every hour, every minute somebody is tweeting what social media is all about. It’s all about engagement. It’s all about conversation. You get out what you put in.

My #Trulondon – Random thoughts and ramblings

I wanted to wait a few weeks till I wrote my blog on what my takeaways were from #trulondon to let them sink in properly. For me, it was a great event. Logistically, we had a few problems and hands up, we made a few cock ups that we need to get right, mostly around […]

Social Learning – the future of training?

I’ve spent quite a lot of time this year looking at social learning. I actually think it has more potential for take-up than social recruiting, and could significantly change the way training is delivered and training is received. The potential here is huge, and is the area I want to develop with the communities we […]

I’m in the middle of writing up a series of learning points that hit home for me during #trulondon2, but this video from Jon Ingham was simmilar to a post I was composing, so here is my uncut thoughts.  In you’r blog “You’ll never be rich (it’s tru!)” on your excellent blog, Jon Ingham’s strategic, you refer […]
