I recently posted an article on my top 5 accounting and IT blogs and I thought I’d follow this up with a run down of my favourite blogs in the HR sector. There is a vibrant section of the blogosphere dedicated to issues around HR and here I list some examples which get the seal of approval:
1. People Management
People Management is the official magazine of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the professional body for those involved in the management and development of people. Two blogs are run from its website – the Editors’ blog, in which People Management journalists comment on the latest HR news and developments, and the Specialists’ blog, where top HR commentators offer their observations on the business world.
2. Personnel Today
The ‘editors’ blog’ of this leading industry publication is a great source of information about everything going on in the world of human resources. Packed full of news and views, this blog is a must-read.
3. HR Headmistress
A personal blog from the MD of Milton Keynes-based consulting firm Russell HR. Regularly updated, the blog provides an interesting perspective, proclaiming its existence is an opportunity to let off steam about employment law, HR, politicians, plumbers, the importance of shoes and all the really major issues of the day!
4. HR Magazine
This blog from the much-respected magazine HR Magazine aims to put HR into a business perspective. Blog postings cover a wide range of topics, from flexible working to employment law.
5. HR Zone
HR Zone is a popular site which allows everyone to submit blog postings and get their thoughts on HR topics or issues of their chests. All you need to do is log-in and start blogging!
