Second, to hundreds of our customers who share so much with us and allow us to continuously learn and apply;

and Last to my sweet daughter, who would have turned 12 today….we miss you Sayeesha.

Here, he has talked about how his daughter taught him a thing or two about people. Most of the submissions focus on measurement, analytics, processes etc. and this is a welcome right-brained thought.

Naomi in her In Full Bloom blog has given two posts on HRM Software. The Future of HRM Software: Naomi’s Preferred Behaviors and The Future of HRM Software: Effective Dating and just when my idling mind thought of this as a matchmaking software, it turns out to be the dating of records in the database :-(

Paul Smith at Welcome To The Occupation blog has written a thoughtful post I Say Yes To The Dress, a metaphor for loving your job. Can HR provide a Kleinfield experience to its internal customers – i.e the rest of the organization? Can it motivate the company employees to provide an outstanding and memorable experience to its customers and prospects?
