It feels weird posting a LinkedIn post in FishBowl, but I found this post from Jamal very insightful. I would have just copied the text, but I want to give him credit.
The current administration has banned critical race theory-based diversity training across federal agencies claiming education around white privilege is anti-American. As someone who is dedicated to anti-racism work, I believe these conversations on the pervasiveness of systemic racism are necessary in order to dismantle the broken system and are central to our work as HR professionals. I fear what precedent this ban will set. Thoughts from other HR pros? https://www.forbes.com/sites/janicegassam/2020/09/05/trump-bans-diversity-training-claiming-its-divisive-anti-american-propaganda/
What does your company’s performance management cycle look like? Do you do quarterly reviews? Decouple compensation from feedback? What does the calendar look like?

We've had a few instances of possible COVID sick employees that returned with negative test results. Upper management is basically asking if there is something they can do to help control what employees are doing in their off time (ie. going to bars or other places with a lot of people). They even went as far as to mention something about a wedding that 3 of the employees are in together. Can an employer have ANY control over an employee's time off? It seems crazy to think that they think they can.
Hello I’m an HR Specialist with 6 years exp and I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies and now I’m looking to transition into a people and culture role in a start up space but I’m having trouble with highlighting my skills to showcase that I’d be a good fit and have the necessary experience.

Looking for some advise on making a career move. I've been in software and telecom sales most of my career, starting at a telco (14 yrs) and then a small independent consulting company (4 yrs). Focus as been in cybersecurity and workplace/IT Modernization (Collaboration Platforms, SD-WAN, etc). I'd like to stay in sales leadership role, but I'm currious if the larger players (Microsft, Cisco, Salesforce, or a large consulting player) hire leaders from outside when not coming from a large firm.

Anyone have any tactics they’d like to share that would help me land an interview? I’m worried they won’t even read my resume, despite me being qualified for the job.

imagine learning about the consulting life as an undergrad, going through the brutal recruiting process, landing “the dream job” where you get to travel, explore, and develop yourself.

I’m curious how creative teams are dealing with the distance. How have you changed the way you work with your partner? Is anything same-same, harder, or (surprisingly) easier? [a lot of us work more independently, or wrangling multiple stakeholders/vendors/SMEs, but the creative team dynamic fascinates me and I’m genuinely curious to hear how it’s going for you right now]
