So I didn’t get my brother and your sister-in-law a gift for their wedding last February because I wanted to send them on a honeymoon. I thought I’d be able to use my points and really give them experience to remember. But it turns out because of Covid there are limits to the use of points for hotels and airfare. I don’t mind spending my own money, what do you think is reasonable? This is my only sibling.
Really getting smacked with LinkedIn “so proud to announce..” posts this morning. Do you get extra points or something if you parlay your achievements into one post and also post a logo of each brand name?

Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....

Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own?

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
