A Diverse Carnival of HR

Well, hey there Carnival fans! I don’t know about you but 2012 has been crazy so far, luckily in good ways, and if this is any indicator of the rest of the year, I better prepare myself for the fun. And speaking of fun, did you know the latest Carnival of HR is live right now over at The Devon Group Blog! Hosted by long time friend of the carnival, Melissa Prusher, this time the Carnival tried to focus on diversity in the workplace as a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a great collection of posts so you need to go check it out here!

Rolling right along, on February 1st the Carnival of HR is all about the Tribe. Well, Tribe HR that is. That’s right, first time host Joseph Fung and his Tribe HR crew will be taking over the Carnival next week so you know you have to get involved. Be sure to get your submissions to joseph at tribehr dot com by Monday, January 30 and become one of the tribe.

Welcome to the 2012 Carnival of HR Season

Happy New Year and welcome to a brand new year of the Carnival of HR! Whether this is your first time checking us out or if you’ve been with us this past 5 (yes 5!) years we are happy to have you! I hope in the coming year you have fun, learn something new, and get more involved in this crazy thing we call the HR online community!

But enough of all that, the first Carnival of the year has already gone live and boy did you all do me proud with your contributions. Hosted by the super fun Dwane Lay at his Lean HR Blog, this carnival had its far share of 2011 reflections, 2012 predictions, and more than enough HR geekery to keep you entertained into the wee hours of the moorning! So head over there now to check it all out!

Coming up quick on January 18th, the Carnival iss heading back to long time contributor and host, Melissa Prusher of the Devon Group Blog! Now, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Melissa would like participants to submit a post that speaks to the value of diversity in the workplace. What are your perspectives on diversity, why is it important, and how do you get it? All other posts are welcome as well but either way, be sure to get your submissions to melissa at devonpr dot com by Monday, January 16th!
