6 HR Blogs Every Employee Should Be Reading

6-hr-blogs-every-employee-should-read.jpgNavigating the ins and outs of complex employer and employee dynamics can be difficult. Whether you just landed your first entry-level position, or have worked hard for a number of years to land that dream job, you can face employment discrimination - or even retaliation if you decide to take a stand against illegal conduct. Thankfully, state and federal law with the help of skilled employment lawyers can protect your rights, but where should you seek answers to your questions about other work-related issues?

6-hr-blogs-every-employee-should-read.jpgNavigating the ins and outs of complex employer and employee dynamics can be difficult. Whether you just landed your first entry-level position, or have worked hard for a number of years to land that dream job, you can face employment discrimination - or even retaliation if you decide to take a stand against illegal conduct. Thankfully, state and federal law with the help of skilled employment lawyers can protect your rights, but where should you seek answers to your questions about other work-related issues?

Much like you would consult an employment attorney for expert advice on topics related to employment law, you may want to consult a human resources professional for advice on how to interact with your overbearing boss, move up the career ladder more quickly, land a job that's right for you and more.

This is why we've decided to list some of our favorite HR blogs to help our readers better understand key topics that affect both employees and job seekers.

HR Blogs for Employees

1.) Ask a Manager

Former chief of staff for a medium-sized, successful organization, Alison Green writes the Ask a Manager blog. This well-written blog covers HR topics and then some: advice about your boss, how to deal with your coworkers, job search information, hiring processes, what to expect in job interviews, how to ask for raises, legal issues at work and much more. Alison also loves to give her opinion, so go ahead and ask for some help - just agree to disagree if you're unhappy with her answer!

2.) Corn on the Job

Rich DeMatteo AKA Corn on the Job, is a globally recognized career expert and career coach who holds a Master's in Human Resources. Rich has also spent time in both agency and corporate recruiting. As if this weren't enough credibility to entice you to read the Corn on the Job blog, perhaps the blog's topics offering advice, wisdom and opinions for job seekers, will.

3.) Evil HR Lady

The Evil HR Lady knows that most employees think all HR people are evil. But her blog seeks to help you understand your Human Resources department by informing employees about the goings on behind the scenes that you simply don't know about - unless you're working in HR. She'll even try her best to answer your own workplace issues and HR problems (if you keep the message concise and use proper grammar, that is).

4.) HR Bartender

Seasoned human resources professional and speaker, Sharlyn Lauby, write the HR Bartender blog. The story behind the name of the blog stems from Sharlyn's experience being the friendly face that her colleagues and employees came to for advice, laughs and encouragement - much like your neighborhood bartender is there for you with not just a drink, but an ear from time to time. In addition to human resources topics, the HR Bartender focuses on issues that relate to the workplace, including: career advice, leadership, management, and office politics. The site is updated with fresh content three to four times each week.

5.) HR Minion

Shauna Moerke is the HR Minion, an HR professional who is very passionate about making HR better. With a diverse work history, Master's degree, and PHR certification, you'd better believe she really isn't a minion after all. Though she doesn't update this blog any longer, she's kept it online as it holds years of helpful HR content. In fact, if you read past posts on Shauna's blog, you'll find valuable HR information, plus workplace and career advice for the everyday employee and future HR professionals. On top of the great info the blog provides, the HR Minion will also give you a chuckle with its opinion pieces written from a minion's point of view.

6.) HR Ring Leader

Trish McFarlane, VP of HR Practice and Principal Analyst for the Brandon Hall Group and founder of the conference, HRevolution writes the HR Ring Leader blog. Topics covered include leadership, performance management, training and development, innovation, change management and more. The real-life examples in her blog posts enable Trish to engage and captivate readers with and without backgrounds in human resources management.
