@Barclays1 - I would shave my legs for this... except the office air conditioning is delightfully male-oriented and my house has lovely AC and insulation.

I guess, on an equality basis. I prefer shorts to short sleeve shirts. But what shoes?! But Lycra should be banned full stop. Even if you're planning to change! 😂

Women aren't ACTUALLY interested in equality, just its benefits, so disabuse yourself of that notion now

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

I’m building a team within a new agency. I’ve worked hard for this opportunity. While battling serious imposter syndrome, I’m struggling with how to bring in people that might have a better skill set or more experience than me without fearing the company would “like them better”. I want to build the best team possible but deep down I worry that I will make myself redundant in the process. Any advice out there on how best to approach? Thanks Ladies.

I have 2 outstanding offers from EY and KPMG in the Finance Transformation group. Does anyone have any insight on the WLB right now, with the labor shortage and pipeline being crazy?

Also,does anyone have any insight to how difficult the transition will be from being a manager at a middle market firm into a manager at the B4? If someone else has done the transition how long did it take to get your feet under you?

My co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?

My fiancée almost lost her life to a medical emergency. The doctor needed me to stay home 2 weeks to supervise her post-operative care once the hospital discharged her. We had nobody near that could help so I got permission to attend class remotely for 2 weeks from the dean and all professors. One professor removed me from a graded argument the week after I’d return. When I asked about this error, he had said “I had planned on your failure to appear” and that he preplanned giving me a 0 grade.
