It's about embracing the spirit of social media.
I honestly can’t remember where I was, but I was listening to some conversation about organizations adopting social media. The conversation turned to the importance of CEOs having Twitter accounts. Now, I totally agree that social media is here to stay. And that companies need to get on the social media bandwagon. However, for the …

Could a t-shirt be a gauge of employee engagement?
You guys know I live in a warm climate. So when the weather gets cold, instead of turning on the heater, I reach for a long sleeve t-shirt. My favorite is one from a past employer. I’ve had it for years – it’s soft and broken in. If you’ve ever had a favorite t-shirt, you …

Every day, business professionals are faced with using problem solving techniques to achieve strategic business and tactical goals within the operation. But the truth is, most of us are not really good at problem solving. We either muddle through, do nothing, adapt or produce “solutions” that often make things worse. Effective problem solving requires the courage to confront feelings, the commitment to do something, and above all the willingness ...

This month includes employees who love their job, ways to deal with stress, and Pi Day.
I must admit I’m looking forward to the Internet blowing up (figuratively, not literally) on March 14, 2015. It’s Pi Day, a mathematical celebration for the ratio that allows us to compute the circumference of round objects. But this year is different. At exactly 9:26:53 a.m. – it will represent the first ten digits of …

By now, we realize social media isn’t going away. In fact, quite the opposite – new social media sites are popping up every day. It’s a challenge to keep current…or even learn the full capabilities of the platform.Let’s face it, we go to a conference or meeting and get talked into opening an account on a social network.

In response to my post on “What are HR Analysts and Why Should You Pay Attention to Them”, I had a Twitter connection ask me about going to conferences. Specifically, about how to sell senior leadership on attending a conference. I have been in this position many times. Even now, as a consultant, I still …

It’s natural to feel disappointed at work, sit with it for a day or so and allow yourself to feel bummed out. But after a day or two, you need to move ahead.
No one loves their job all the time, but how do you know if your stress is normal workday blahs or something more serious?

Introduction

Hi everyone!  I'm Sharlyn Lauby, an HR pro turned consultant and blogger. 

My company, ITM Group Inc., specializes in leadership and management training and human resources consulting.  And my blog, HR Bartender, is a friendly place to discuss workplace issues.  

My off-hours are spent searching for the best hamburger on the planet, fabulous wines that cost less than $10 bottle and unusual iPhone / iPad apps.

I won a bubble gum blowing contest as a kid. And years ago, I was in a local performance group of the "Rocky Horror Picture Show". I played the role of Magenta.
