What's trending in the news, in business, or with our employees? Within the HR field, it can be critical to pay attention to trends. It is important to pay attention to the priorities placed on pieces of our business and our resources. We must understand the wheels and cogs of the transactions we complete. We must be able to measure our success and the completion of our work.
HR Florida could not be successful without the hard work and support of its volunteer leaders. Volunteer leaders are chapter presidents and board members who make up the HR Florida State Council. The Volunteer of the Year is an annual award that recognizes a volunteer who actively supports, promotes, and develops the human resource profession through volunteerism.
The success of HR Florida depends on the diligent work and support of local Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) affiliated chapters. The HR Florida chapter excellence awards honor the work of local Florida chapters. The awards focus on the demonstrated achievements and execution of one or more leadership core areas.

For over 30 years, emoticons have been used as symbols added to text based communication to convey a sender’s state of mind or the emotional nuance of a message. Many of us spend most of our day communicating through electronic means, when in fact, sometimes we are close enough to hold hands or are sitting in the next room.
Some say that the road to success is paved with patience, hard work and perseverance, while others believe it is paved with failures. Either way, when it comes to reaching that final destination, what matters most is how the road is driven.

When I say “HR and Technology,” what immediately comes to your mind? When the theme for this issue of our magazine was shared with me, I had to think about what that really means to me.
