This is it…the penultimate post in the countdown to #100. Without further ado, here is the second most read post on Talent Vanguard:
HR’s Future: ‘People Persons’ Need Not Apply – May 2013
Hi! We’re getting close now… a few short weeks until I hit post 100. Hope I don’t run out of ideas for 100 and just type “People are our most valuable asset” 100 times…
Anyway, I’m sharing my third most read post of all time this week. But I’m sort of cheating.

By far the most read and most shared post I wrote was based on Bonni Titgemeyer‘s great session about becoming an HR blogger (republished below). I got lots of comments on Twitter, retweets and favorites, and many of them were from non-bloggers. Clearly Bonni’s presentation, and my post, struck a nerve. I can’t help but think that there are many HR folks out there (possibly lurking in shrubberies) who love the idea of blogging and are looking for their chance to dip a toe in the water.
I’m about to tell you about that chance! Read more
