My own interpretation of the world of HR chock full of charm and snark for your reading enjoyment!

Welcome to HR Pockets




I live, breath, eat and sleep human resources because I absolutely love interacting with people in the professional world.

On this website, I want to share those experiences with you.​

If you are looking for a place to begin…. Start at the beginning!

As you follow along you’ll notice that I’m uncaringly sarcastic, which I think translates to comedic and this will help you understand the choosing of “hrpockets” as the title of this blog.
