I’m happy to welcome the month of March each year! Not because of Spring, although I am rather tired of Winter, but because March marks the anniversary of my blog “CostofWork.” It’s not been around very long, since 2011, but in blog years that’s like 10 years in the game! This blog has afforded me some wonderful opportunities –so much that I thought it was time to give back to the same HR community that’s been so great to me.
The Carnival of HR is an awesome way for human resource and business minded professionals to get involved and connected with each other. I appreciate Shauna Moerke for allowing me to host this special “mini” Carnival of HR. I am also impressed at the response from the community – some people I know and some I am getting to know. I encourage you to connect to these people and their blogs as well.
So without further delay, It’s my honor and privilege to be the Ring Master and host, for the 1st time on CostofWork – the Carnival of HR!
