10 Essential HR Blogs

10 Essential HR General Blogs

Last week I’ve started a series of posts where I will showcase some of the main sources of reading and inspiration. After looking at the resources on Organisation Design, here is my list of HR blogs. These are blogs that focus on the wide topic of HR and People Management in general (I will focus on more specialised blogs in the future).

These blogs are those that have provided more food for thought over the past years. Again, the listing is in casual random order.

One of the most knows analysts of the HR Market, Josh Bersin has consolidated his blog presence after leaving Bersin by Deloitte, and now focuses on topics that are more transversal to the HR profession than only technology (although this stays as a key focus area of his analysis).

Some Notable Articles:

Women of HR

Women of HR is a site dedicated to the development of women in Human Resources and business. When i first found this blog, I was a bit puzzled: after all HR is one of the professions with highest presence of women. But most of our experience will for sure confirm that this doesn’t mean that equality has been reached. Plus the blog features some very interestizng points of view on many HR topics.
