Carnival of HR is open
Summer is gone. Fall (or Autumn, to be technical) is here. People in Florida are looking forward to the cooler weather that comes with the change of seasons. For other parts of the country, it won’t be long before the snow starts falling. Perhaps you can tell that I have nothing profound to say today, since I started this post by talking about the weather. Fortunately for me, I have lots of friends who have plenty to say, so let’s get on with the show as the Carnival of HR returns to Human Race Horses.
I asked people to contribute a piece about change in the workplace since it is in keeping with the changing seasons.
The changing seasons of HR
Our first sapling of change comes to us from the United Kingdom from our long time friend Jon Ingham who sends end us a post about OD and the Borg. You know this story right? Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.
Abhishek Mittal sends his personal greetings from sunny Singapore, and his blog post review of the book “Transformative HR” by Professor John Boudreau (Marshall School of Business) and Ravin Jesuthasan (Global Practice Lead for Talent Management, Towers Watson).
The always awesome Wally Bock delivers two, two posts in one carnival with his take on Three Ways to Avoid Performance Management which points out that lots of bosses hate performance management, and offers three strategies for avoiding them altogether. Wally also sends along Learning for Competitive Advantage in the Knowledge Economy.
Alison Chisnell combines song and HR insight with the aptly titled “Baby, you can drive my car just a little bit faster”
