I’m in the US at the moment, attending and presenting at a couple of conferences, including on International HR at Ohio SHRM 2010 on Friday. Then, when I get back to the UK, I’m straight off to Egypt. So the international aspects of HR and Human Capital management are at the front of my mind – and I thought would provide an interesting focus for this edition of the HR carnival too.
So, we’ve got a few new bloggers in this carnival, and a few posts about international HR issues too. Let’s get stuck in:
Prasad Kurian (Simplicity at the other side of complexity) posts on Renewable resources for thought leadership in HR.
Frank Mullivan puts himself in Other People’s Shoes.
And to make sure we do, he’s also submitted The Twintettes’ A Sound Investment?.
Elaine Cohen also has a guest post on XpertHR: If I could change one thing about HR.…
Samara Irume (a Brazilian based in Boston writing in Portuguese) posts at her blog e-continuus (with a wonderful meez!): Conflitos Eticos no Ambiente de Trabalho. Google provides an English translation at http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=pt&tl=en&u=http://irume.net/%3Fp%3D91.
Rob Brouwer at Monsterthinking.com posts on When Want Ads Won’t Do: Solving Brazil’s Talent Crisis.
Jason Seiden (Fail Spectacularly) looks at Martina Navratilova and Failure. He explains “While I can't change my nationality in support of this month's international theme, I can highlight a quote from an internationally acclaimed athlete. Martina Navratilova is a true champion, from a time when the only way to become famous as an athlete was to be the best... and this is what she has to say about the secret of her success.”
Mark Vickers (TrendWatcher) suggests High Performers Purge the Unproductive.
Mary Jo Asmus suggests we should Let Them See You as Human.
Melissa Prusher notes that What Comes ‘Round, Goes ‘Round.
Trish McFarlane (HR Ringleader) provides Present Your Best Ideas Today To An Eager and Welcoming Audience.
Dan McCarthy (Great Leadership) rants on avoiding senseless reorganisations. And thanks Dan for noting that “While it's not international, note that I at least spelled reorganisations properly in this email. (-:” ! : Reorganizations: Don’t Just Shake up the Bird Cage.
Ravi Banda (Talented Apps) looks at Feedback process and the timing.
Ben Eubanks (UpstartHR) notes that 70% of employers perform social search on candidates.
There you go.
I’ve not managed to get quite so many ‘international’ blogs (I’m thinking particularly of non-US and UK) as I’d have liked.
So thanks in particular to Michael Carty for providing some posts from XpertHR’s series of guest posts, “If I could change one thing about HR...” (including other US bloggers J Keith Dunbar, Paul Smith, Stefanie Fontanez and Charlie Judy as well as UK based bloggers like Grumpy Lecturer (see the full list so far here).
If anyone working outside the US and UK wants to add their posts to this, I’ll republish the carnival including these other submissions at the end of the month.
