HR Happy Hour: Great Resource for HR Professionals


August 12, 2010

As I meet more practicing HR professionals, recruiters, and consultants in the space, one question always comes up.  They want to know what online resources I recommend for them to follow.  Sometimes my first instinct is to share a favorite blog link or two, but when I think of what will provide:

  • Ease of use
  • Solid industry information
  • Interviews from great thinkers outside the HR industry
  • The ability to interact
  • Fun, fun, and more fun

I always think of the HR Happy Hour show.  For well over a year now, hosts Steve Boese and Shauna Moerke have been putting together a weekly show for professionals in the HR industry.  And while the underlying tone of the show is all about fun, they really do tackle some of the most challenging issues with leading authors, practitioners, and consultants.  Every Thursday night at 8:00 pm EST/ 7:00 pm CST, you can find them on BlogTalk Radio.  And, if you’re not available at that time, you can download the show on iTunes.  Listen in your car, at work during lunch, at the gym.  Whatever time is convenient for you.

Tonight’s HR Happy Hour Show will highlight recruiting and how leaders at are taking on the challenges posed in the market today.  Steve and Shauna will talk with, Tom Silver, SVP of  You can call in to listen via phone at (646) 378-1086 or on the HR Happy Hour site.

If you’ve never heard the show before, I recommend clicking HERE now to see a little welcome clip from Steve and Shauna.  Then, page through their site to see all the topics they’ve covered. In addition, if you use Twitter, you can follow the hashtag #HRHappyHour during the show for more commentary from HR pros around the world.

So, join in tonight! And here’s my challenge for you today.  Forward this post to several practicing HR pros you know and invite them to listen to the show.  Let’s see if we can grow our community by sharing this great resource.


  • Thanks very much Trish for sharing information about the show with your readers. We really enjoy doing the show, and hope that we are providing some valuable information and of course having a few laughs on the way. If any of the HR professionals in your audience have some ideas or suggestions for topics and guests they would like to hear from, please let us know.
