    One More Big Reason to Join Us



    My last reason to join us is to stave off the feeling of being isolated or lonely. I hear this a lot from HR people who ARE the HR team or are part of a VERY small HR team in your company. And even in a larger HR organization.


    It’s easy to see how that can happen; especially when things aren’t going well. Being a good HR manager in any organization can be ‘personally’ challenging because, sometimes, you need to take a stand or insist on an approach your managers or senior leaders don’t agree with. If you want to win the popularity contest, you probably shouldn’t be in HR.


    But, the good news is that you aren’t alone. There is a larger, diverse HR community that you can be part of in North County. We have members of different ages, races, HR functions, levels of HR experience, perspectives and so forth. Even in our diversity, most of our members face the same set of issues you face. 


    You may find you have a lot of similarities to others in our NCHR-SD community. And you may get just the right perspective you need for success. 


    Our theme for 2017 is ‘Building our HR Community’. We take steps at our events to build our HR Community. 


    We hope to see you at one of our upcoming luncheons or workshops.


    Donna Evans,

    President, NCHR-SD







    Alternative facts: The alarming trend impacting 85% of hiring managers



    By Jared Bilski on May 10, 2017


    Planning on adding staff some time in the near future? It appears that there’s some new urgency to double- and triple-check those resumes and ask plenty of follow-up questions during the interview process. 
    Reason: A staggering 85% of employers discovered lies on job applicants’ resumes in the past year, according to a recent 2017 Employment Screening Benchmark Report by HireRight.

    That’s  a huge jump from the 66% of employers that said they found lies on resumes just five years ago.

    While lying on a resume is nothing new, the steep jump hiring managers uncovering untruths in such a short time frame is certainly disturbing. Read more...







    Forget paternity leave, ‘paw-ternity’ leave is the recruiting benefit of the future



    By Jared Bilski on August 15, 2017



    Many employers don’t even offer paternity leave to employees, but one organization offers this benefit for both human and fur babies.

    The latter is called “paw-ternity” leave, and it’s a benefit in a class all its own.

    It’s also a perk one Scottish brewery recently opened up to its 1,000 employees. BrewDog offers new dog owners one week off with pay to get their pet acclimated to their new homes.

    On top of its canine-related leave, which aims to make the animal adoption less stressful for employees and dogs, BrewDog offers extremely generous paternity and maternity leave.

    It’s all part of the owners’ quest to offer the best benefits of any company in the world. Read more...




    HR Humor


    Office Humor






    Sick Leave: I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the Boss would not allow me to take a leave. I thought that maybe if I acted "CRAZY" then he would tell me to take a few days off. So, I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker asked me what I was doing.


    I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss would think I was "CRAZY" and give me a few days off. A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, "What are you doing?"


    I told him I was a light bulb. He said, "You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days."


    I jumped down and walked out of the office.

    When my co-worker followed me, the Boss asked her, "And where do you think you're going?"(You're
    gonna love this.....)She said, "I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark."



    Why do you love HR?
    Let the funny kids of remind
    you of the joys and pains of being in HR.
