I recently connected with a fairly new HR blogger on Twitter and found out she is actually part of our Illinois SHRM and fellow Midwesterner. I’m referring to Nicole Och (of HR Roots) and I’m looking forward to meeting up with her at ILSHRM12 in a couple of weeks.
I love that Nicole writes about social business and how to incorporate from a newly Human Resource point of view, and she really gives great advice on getting started in social media and how to connect to others online. In fact, her Twitter Bio reads:
HR Professional with a passion for the use of Social Media in Business. It’s not a fad, it’s a way of life!
And her tagline on HR Roots says “Cultivating and Nourishing the Garden of HR” - and she truly does. She gets social and is not only writing great content but engaging with her connections. That’s what I love about her. She gets what it’s like to be a social newbie and she targets her message to those are just getting started. So many of us have forgotten those folks and I give her kudos for keeping it simple and for having a passion to help those who are experiencing the same things we’ve all experienced in our social media beginnings.
Make sure to connect with Nicole and show her some love online and off. Have her guest post for you and make sure you get a chance to meet her IRL at the upcoming ILSHRM12 conference. In fact, make a point to do so. Oh, and she’s always welcome to guest post here at the Cafe.
