March Madness | Carnival of HR Style

We’re down to the Final Four here in the US. (With apologies to our readers from across the globe for this very US-centric pre-amble).

Of course the biggest story out of this year’s NCAA Men’s tournament was how all No.1 seed teams were eliminated before the Elite Eight play (first time in history that happened). The second biggest story, IMO, has been the collective sounds of crying and gnashing of teeth as armchair coaches, workplace bracket-players, and even hard-core gamblers found themselves with busted brackets. (fun fact: according to the NCAA there has never been a verified perfect bracket. Which makes sense when you realize the odds are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.)

You know what IS verified perfection though? The content generated across the HR eco-system during the month of March (she shoots! she scores!). Check out the monthly submissions for this month’s Carnival of HR – and thanks to all the creators who continue to share their ideas and insight via the written and spoken word!
