Intro to HRmoz

Find out about the open blog we're launching for the HR profession, why we're doing it and how to become a founding member.
Intro to HRmoz

The existing HR press and blogosphere focuses on news, balanced opinion, circular debates and strategy from 30,000 feet. This type of content is fine, it has its place but the HR media has focused on this at the expense of practical, actionable advice. Innovative ideas and improvements that can be implemented in the here and now have been neglected.

This is the gap that HRmoz will fill.

HRmoz is an open blog. This means that, as well as producing our own content, we are inviting experts to publish their own articles to the HRmoz community.



The Type of Content we Want

We're not interested in 30,000ft HR strategy, news and opinion, the HR press covers this sort of content a lot. What's lacking is actionable content that someone can read and instantly think "I could do something like that where I work".

For example, rather than articles that talk about the importance of Employee Engagement we want case studies that cover: "We decided employee engagement was important, these were our objectives and the metrics we used. This is what we did (and you can do it too!), here's what we achieved and these are things we would do differently in the future."

Often HR articles try to do too much, articles in HRmoz will be focused on a very specific topic. Rather than a broad topic like "HR needs to embrace social media", HRmoz will publish articles that are tightly focused e.g. "Using Twitter to recruit Gen Y candidates."

If you want to submit an article or to see our editorial rules click here.


Why are we Doing This?

A whole host of reasons really:
  • It feels right.
  • I'm enjoying doing it.
  • We want to give something back to the HR profession that has supported us as a supplier.
  • We'd like to be part of the conversation that's shaping the future of the HR profession.
  • It's been a great way to meet some awesome people in HR.
  • To build awareness of our service among HR professionals. There are much easier ways to do this (trade shows and advertising spring to mind) but like I said, doing it this way just feels right.


What do I want HRmoz to Achieve?

I want HRmoz to showcase some of the amazing things that are going on in HR, to be a melting pot of ideas. For readers to participate, comment, question and add to discussions, to make new connections between ideas and drive innovation in HR.

I want the articles in HRmoz to inspire thousands of small, incremental improvements in HR that, when taken together amount to huge advances in how organisations recruit, retain, motivate and manage their greatest asset.
