New Orleans: City of Champions
I wrote the piece below the shoutout which discusses my take on New Orleans and the HR profession last year while attending the SHRM National Conference. I was struck by the dichotomy of New Orleans as a party place and a place of continuing poverty. While those issues won’t change because of a football game, for a few days at least, the Big Easy can go back to being primarily a party town since their Saints won Super Bowl XLIV yesterday.
Congratulations to the Saints, and the City of New Orleans!

New Orleans is an amazing place. The party never stops on Bourbon Street. People dance to the sounds of music pouring out of the bars. Liquor flows and laughter is everywhere.
People keep talking about how far HR has come. I have heard at least three speakers talk about how when CEOs move, they now tend to take their CFO and their CHRO with them to the new company. Apparently this means HR has arrived as a strategic field.
