I’m an advocate for the workplace revolution, a bit of an HR rebel, and firmly believe we make organizations better when we make HR better.
My main gig is working as Managing Partner for HR + People Strategy with Peridus Group – we’re forward-looking, courageous and believe in designing people strategies with a human focus.
WHAT I DO…..
Develop and lead in-house workshops/forums for HR + People Teams. Tailored to specific objectives, we energize and inspire HR + People teams as we co-create innovative, practical and sustainable solutions. During the course of either a full or half-day, the team will:
- Learn about the latest HR, Recruiting and workforce trends.
- Explore new ways of delivering HR.
- Design forward-looking people strategies.
- Plan and/or kick-off new projects.
- Create transformative experiences for HR customers and themselves.
- Re-imagine HR in the context of today’s workplace.
Provide HR managed services (retained) and project support in all areas of HR: talent acquisition; onboarding and cultural affinity strategies; HR practice, policy and compliance reviews; employee communication planning; performance management; creation of functional handbooks/policies and job descriptions; develop and conduct manager and supervisor training.
In addition to writing in this little corner of the world, I’ve also written for Recruiting Daily, Fast Company, HR Examiner, Certified Magazine, SHRM and other sites. I speak at HR and business events across the globe, conduct webinars, and provide content for various vendors in the HR space. For a long time I wrote at the HR Schoolhouse and there are still loads of posts over there.
I’ve been an Advisory Board Member for HR|Onboard (Melbourne, AUS) and have served on advisory boards for BlackbookHR, Smartbrief on Workforce, Geaux Veterans, and the Louisiana Business Leadership Network.
I’m a Board Member and co-chair with HR Open Source, content curator (Ringleader!) of the Carnival of HR where we bring together the best posts from the HR blogging community and a co-host of DrivethruHR – one of the longest running HR podcasts (1,400+ episodes!)
I adore my dogs (Frank Lapidus, Mr. Crumples and Eddy von Schooling), am a fervent fan of the New Orleans Saints (#WhoDat), and am on a never-ending quest to find the perfect French 75.
