Can you believe that we are only days away from it being April? I have to get my April’s Fools day jokes ready. But more importantly, now is a great time to reflect back on all the Carnival of HR awesomeness we have enjoyed so far this year. It’s gone by fast but I want to make sure that you don’t miss out on any of this amazing content so let’s get started!
Starting us off right, we had first time host but long time cool person, Christine Assaf jump into the hosting role at her HR Tact blog to talk about resolutions for the new year. Then quick on her heels one of my favorite people, Dwane Lay hosted on the 15th over at The Dovetail Software Blog. And wrapping up January, Melissa Fairman braved the Polar Vortex to bring the Carnival to her HR Remix blog on the 29th.
February was all about the love, as first time host and the Carnival’s Valentine this year, Sara Williams stepped in at the last minute on the 12th with her own version of a white horse, hosting at her blog, The Buzz on HR. Closing out the month on the 26th with a Winter Olympics tribute, Anita Lettink scored a perfect 10 for her hosting work at her Visions for HR Blog.
And finally, March may not have been living up to it’s supposed “Spring” promises but our Carnival hosts were. On the 12th Sandrine Bardot took us international with when she hosted at her Compensation Insider Blog. And just this week on the 26th, Dorothy Dalton brought us HR and the changing times we work in, over at her International Talent Management Strategy Blog.
That’s an awful lot of amazing HR content to fit into only 3 months but somehow I think this is a good omen for the rest of the year. Because if there is one thing the Carnival of HR does best, it’s introduce you to the HR content that you need to be reading.
Hey there Carnival Fans, we’ve been a little overdue on getting out those Carnival updates to you so why don’t I quick hook you up with the Carnivals from the last quarter of 2013 before we get to the Carnivals from Quarter 1 of 2014? Onward we go, quick like a bunny!
On Sept 25th Jesse Lyn Stoner hosted a thought provoking Carnival at her Seapoint Center Blog while on Oct 9th Karin hurt brought us expert career advice on her Let’s Grow Leaders Blog. Not to be outdone, Ciprian Bortos rounded out October on the 23rd with a Carnival all about the common challenges that HR Professionals face at his eSkill Blog.
November isn’t just for Thanksgiving and football, it’s also a time when longtime friends of the Carnival took over hosting duties. On November 6th The Devon Group showed us the way and on November 20th Jennifer Miller brought together essays on Leadership, Career Development, Employee Engagement, and HR Practices at The People Equation Blog.
Last but certainly not least, our December hosts really brought the 2013 Carnival year to a fantastic close. First The MeshWorking Blog went all in one their Carnival post, no links for them, they went full articles. And Last but not least, Amit Bhagria of Young HR Manager brought everything together with 2014 HR Trends for his Carnival on December 18th.
Whew that was a busy 2013, and 2014 is shaping out to be just as full of awesome HR blogging goodness!
