A Baked Recap

I recently shared with you all about BakedHR, a YouTube channel Jazmine Wilkes and I started. You can also catch some content on Instagram. If you’re not subscribed to our channel or following us on IG yet, I just made it real easy for you to fix that! Anyway, I wanted to pop in and […]

BakedHR

The blog has been quiet for a while now, even though it went through a really great makeover earlier this year (you could book your own update here: https://21adsmedia.com/ – Andrew is GREAT to work with!), but I’ve just been focused elsewhere. During all the ups and downs of 2020, and can I just admit […]

Why’d you wear that?

I recently had a chance to catch up with some of my favorite local HR friends and let me just go on record now, that doesn’t happen enough! After catching up on other areas of life we did the usual: swapped weird stories, dissected everything around the one employee we can’t seem to make happy, […]

What do your employees even do?

My inbox and timeline are consistently filled with employee engagement tips. Every day I get something from a vendor or two trying to pitch an HR Tech tool to solve employee engagement or a white paper on effective employee engagement strategy. No matter how well written or how well thought out these tools are, they […]

After interview thank you note advice:

Recently I called on some of my pals to help me navigate a question… What makes a thank you note from a candidate stand out after an interview. Check out what some of the best business professionals had to say below and let us know if you would add anything else! I mentioned some challenges […]

Don’t do it tomorrow

Why do it tomorrow when you can do it today? Time management has been my biggest challenge over the last couple of months. I thought after giving up some of my volunteer roles I would have all this free time, but that hasn’t exactly happened. I don’t know how or why, but I’m going to […]

Don’t underestimate boundaries

Boundaries at work/with work are good for you. You can love your work and have boundaries. I’d argue that having boundaries can make it easier to love your work. Boundaries at work can look like saying no to projects you know you don’t have the bandwidth to complete. Boundaries can look like not staying late […]

Who do you really support?

The most important career lesson I ever learned was to understand the business. There seems to be a lot of back and forth about HR being business professionals/or not being business professionals. In my opinion the easiest way to win this discussion is to make sure you understand the business you support-not just the people […]
