Review of 2012 and into 2013 HR Carnival


   2013 is kicking off with the HR Carnival at Strategic HCM.
I asked contributors to send in one of more of: their favourite / best read posts; reviews of 2012 and predictions for 2013.
Thanks to everyone for their contributions – and I include them all as normal (as it’s Christmas / New Year, I’m even letting PRs submit posts for their clients, which I wouldn’t normally see as fulfilling the HR Carnival’s criteria).
Here you go then:
