The Carnival of HR is back in sunny Singapore after more than a year! Themed as “Emergent Trends in HR”, I hope you enjoy reading the posts in this edition as much as I did. Many thanks to the prolific people who contributed to the carnival.
- One of my ex-colleagues, Joachim Stroh, proposes an awesome hack which can take us From Filling Positions to Matching Talent, using powerful concepts of micro-tasks, micro-roles and micro-skills. Not to be missed!
- One of my all-time favourite HR / OD guys is Gurprriet Siingh. He rants about the future of Talent Management in this great blog post.
- We don’t have a lot of HR bloggers in Asia (excl. India), but William Chin is an exception. From his den in Beijing, he has taken a lot of effort to consolidate the social media recruitment statistics in Asia. Fantastic work!
- Gautam Ghosh, India’s Talent & Social Business rockstar himself, writes about Abhijit Bhaduri’s new book and says “Don’t Hire Rockstars, But Hire Cultural Fits”.
- Leadership & Ethics is a much-talked about area in recent times. Linda Fisher Thornton writes about developing ethical leaders for the future.
- Ian Welsh asks us all some pertinent questions in his post “Tough Moral Roads Ahead for HR?”
- Joseph Fung from TribeHR talks about why real-time technology matters to Human Capital.
- Chris Wells sent his entry on Work Management and how it integrates seamlessly with performance management.
- Andrew Tarvin shares some fun ways to think outside the box with these 20 Problem Solving Activities to improve creativity.
- Robert Tanner outlines “Seven Ways to Poison Your Relationship With Your Employees”. You definitely don’t want to fall in any of these traps!
- Finally, my own post based on my experiences in Asia, where HR folks are not adequately defining the Objectives & ROI Measures for Social HR initiatives.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the Carnival of HR!
