December is the time we take a look back at our year and recap the highlights.
Our Year in Review
January: We kicked off the new year looking at the trials and tribulations of job titles & job descriptions. We lean towards the "less is more approach" in job descriptions, so the ones we write contain:
Compensation range (if developed)
Purpose of the job
Requirements for competency
As for job titles, our take at Love HR is be creative as long as the job title is organizationally consistent, relevant to the industry, and recognizable to the job's customer.
March, April & May: These Spring months were dedicated to ideas and techniques to retain great employees and it took us three months because there is so much you can do. (You might be able to guess that this is a core expertise of Love HR and a topic we are very passionate about!)
June: Moving into Summer, we discussed the components of a good new hire orientation which is also a valuable tool in an employee retention strategy.
December: Now, in December, we are planning our content for next year and want to ask you what you would like to see. Please could you help us by taking part in this short (6 question) survey?
That is a wrap of not only our December 2010 newsletter but also our 2010 year in general. Thanks for your participation, support, and for helping Love HR grow. We look forward to hearing from you in the New Year and wish you all the best of the season and a wonderful 2011.

On November 17th, we shared our Hiring Secrets with Kelowna Women in Business at the Manteo Resort. It was a fun and full house, so we'll let you know where and when we will be sharing these 20 tips again.
