Human resources continues to be a valuable function within organizations, despite the fact that some CEOs and other business leaders shrug HR off for a variety of reasons. HR is continuously battling against issues from all sides (as explained in the infamous “Why We Hate HR” article), but as someone who presumably works in HR or people-related departments, you know where you provide value. The trick is: how do you show value to people outside HR, and how do you prove it?
That’s why HRMToday is so great. There are so many good HR blogs out there and plenty more people who want to talk about the topics that can take human resources to the next level. At the same time, even with this little thing called Google (I just found out about it the other day. It’s great), it’s difficult to find all of the gems – and, when you have, to keep track of all the great content being produced.
That’s why the Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) has taken on the responsibilities of HRMToday. We want companies to succeed, and we know that to do so they have to have a strategically focused, high-performing workforce. You’ve probably heard of us, and if you haven’t… well, now you have (OK, fine, if you want to learn about i4cp – and I hope you do – you can learn about what we do here).
I’ve been a member of HRMToday for quite some time, and am excited to work with each of you closely to make the best HR social networking site on the planet. I’d love to hear from you regarding ideas on how we can make HRMToday even better: what HR blogs are we missing that should be included on the site? How can we make the HR groups bigger and better? How can we get more people talking and sharing ideas?
Stay tuned… there’s more to come.
