Our Top 25 Viewed Posts for 2016

| Garrett O'Brien - From Whence We Came While scanning over our top 25 viewed posts for 2016, I was humbled yet amazed we did as well as we did this year. They say it's not the fall that matters but that it is the bounce that counts. We bounced good! It always helps to step back and measure where one has grown, maintained ground... lost ground... As well as assess just how high we bounced. Truthfully, the last 2 years have been a huge challenge as many projects we started failed before they could even take off, or they took off and crash landed. We knew the risks for trying a lot of new things at the same time - not the most conducive environment for stability so thankfully we get bored easily here! For those that make themselves available to learn during the process, doing a lot of things at the same time builds character, strength, insight, discernment -- ...

Introducing Our Features for Everyone

| Garrett O'Brien - With this post we are launching with our new features and services - there are features for everyone, features for our members, as well as services for vendors. We are also officially relaunching with a new server, new theme, along with a ton of work performed on the back end. You will be introduced to the features for everyone in this post, and in our next post you will be introduced to the features for our members and a third post for our vendor services. And before we get started, we do want to offer our apologies to all for the abrupt downtime this month - the previous theme broke something resulting in not being able to accomplish anything on the back end without resorting to another theme during the process, bouncing back to the original and/or massaging the database. We already had the theme you see now started in ...

Introducing:
The HRIS World Speaker Interview Series™

| Garrett O'Brien - Somewhere in the preparations for 2015's major conferences in London and Paris, the idea of interviewing the speakers before their appearance at the conference took form. We worked with both Marc Coleman's group HRN Europe 2015 as well as Barry Swales at Tucana Global in lining up our first group of speakers. Though the original idea included video, podcast and post platforms for the interviews, outside circumstances way beyond our control limited the first several interviews via an email questionnaire. We will, as time goes along, start incorporating all the platforms available to us as we know you, our audience, have different preferences in how you like to obtain your information (that doesn't mean the speakers will be submitting on all the available platforms, it does mean the speaker gets to choose what platform works best for them)...
