Meet Madison Jones

One of the many things I enjoy about this hyper-connected social world we live in today is that I get to meet people I would not normally have the opportunity to meet.

Last week, I met Madison Jones. Madison is a self-described 30-something writer, speaker, social media enthusiast and human resource connoisseur. She started a shiny new blog and reached out to me for an interview. Women, HR, new blog - how could I resist.

Madison asked great questions about how my military time shaped my HR life, technology on the job, choosing a workforce team, employee performance and industry blogs. It was fun.

Take a look at our interview here.

We connected through Women of HR so let me take a moment to point you in that direction to check out the best compilation of writing and topics related to women, HR, leadership, business and community on the web.

Have a good one!

HR, Meet Technology

When I have an inefficient work process or need data to problem solve, I often look to technology. Sometimes, I don't. I just do what I've always done, the way I've always done it and I gripe about technology voids in my workplace.

Good thing there are people out there paying attention to how work gets done,   listening to gripes and doing something about it.
