The “What do you do?” Carnival of HR

Hey there Carnival people! Once again I find myself trying to crank one of these Carnival posts out before I leave on a plane, this time I’m not at the airport yet so let’s hope I get better results! Anyway, the latest Carnival has arrived and it was held by 5th time host Jon Ingham over at his Strategic HCM blog! Dude, is the Carnival like SNL where if you host 5 times you enter into an exclusive club of all-stars? I think it should be! Maybe we can make up a secret handshake or get matching jackets or something. But enough about that, the latest Carnival had an awesome turnout so you really need to head over there now and learn more about What us HR pros really do every day.

Now coming up on June 8th and part of celebrating their 1 year blogging anniversary, the next Carnival of HR will be hosted at the Women of HR site! Yay! Now you know you have to participate in that! Cake and punch for everybody! More details to come but I expect you all to bring out something really special for that Carnival!

A Dancing Carnival of HR

Hey there Carnival people!! I hope you have your dancing shoes on and remembered to stretch because the latest Carnival of HR is live and it’s about to fill up your dance card. Hosted by Lynn Dessert at her blog Elephants at Work (love the name BTW) this Carnival was all about the dancing we do at work. So if you want to learn all the right moves, you better go check it out here!

But don’t wear yourself out with all that dancing! Coming up real quick on May 18th Ben Eubanks will be hosting a special Carnival of HR: HREvolution edition so be sure to get him your HREvolution posts by Monday May 16th to ben at upstarthr dot com.

Then right on schedule, the next Carnival is traveling back across the ocean to the UK on May 25th and it is once again hosted by the fun Jon Ingham over at his Strategic HCM Blog. I don’t know about you, but I love when the Carnival goes International. Stay tuned for all the details and to stay on top of all the latest Carnival news, be sure to join our email reminder list!

A Share the Love Carnival of HR

Hey there Carnival people! So last week while sitting at the airport I got this post all ready to go, hit publish, and… WordPress ate it. As I was about to get on a plane I couldn’t recreate the masterpiece that is every blog post I do (yeah, right) and then HRevolution happened and I was distracted by all the shenanigans. So, in other words, sorry this recap is so late.

Anywho, last week the Carnival of HR was all about sharing the love! Hosted by the super smart professor Matt Stollak at his True Faith HR Blog, Matt wanted everyone to talk about who has inspired them. There are a lot of great and inspirational bloggers out there and I got so many warm fuzzies reading about them. Don’t believe me? Then hurry over here and check it out!

Coming up right quick next Wed, May 11th, Lynn Dessert will be hosting at her Elephants at Work Blog and baby, this Carnival has got the moves! Lynn is looking for posts about the dancing we do at work. IN her own words:

For this month’s carnival, I would like the contributors to think about how organizations or people are influenced or represented by dance partnerships in different styles of dance.

And just for Lynn, I am looking the other way on the recent post requirement so if you have a post about the dancing that goes on at work, be sure to shimmy it over to Lynn! Go here for all the details on her theme and be sure to email your post to lynn at elephantsatwork dot com by Monday, May 9th and include Carnival of HR in the subject line.

Real quick before I let you all go, Ben Eubanks will be hosting a special off-schedule Carnival of HR: HRevolution Recap on May 18th so be sure to send your posts about the event to ben at upstarthr dot com by Monday, May 16th! How can you resist all that HRevolution goodness in one spot? I know I can’t!
