Thanksgiving is a time to consider what exactly you’re grateful for. It didn’t take us too long to figure that one out – we are thankful for our incredible customers and the broader HR community, to which we hope to continue to add more value to over time. For this week, we specifically wanted to call out five HR bloggers and their spot-on advice for leaders and their growing teams.

Without further ado, here is our roundup of the top 5 human resources blogs this week:

  1. 3 Ways to Establish an Enviable Diversity Program (The Hiring Site)
    Diversity initiatives have (rightfully) become a top priority for organizations. But progress goes beyond just acknowledging that diversity is necessary – you need to establish an actual diversity program. CareerBuilder’s Brendan O’Neil shares his three tips for implementing a successful program at your company.
  2. Office Space Should Be Reflective of Your Work (HR Bartender)
    Open floor plans or cubicles? Floor-to-ceiling windows or closeable blinds? There is no one right answer for how to structure your office space – it depends on what sort of work you’re trying to accomplish. Sharlyn Lauby gives her advice for deciding how exactly to organize your workspace based on the job you need done.
  3. How to Create the Perfect Job Posting – Sexism and Discrimination Free (Blogging4Jobs)
    Creating the right job posting is essential for recruiting the best talent – but how do you craft one that will bring you the best and brightest? One major key is avoiding any apparent discrimination. Jessica Miller-Merrell tells us her do’s and don’ts for crafting a job description that is both inclusive and effective.
  4. Is Your Hiring Process Mobile-Friendly? (Talent Culture)
    In our smartphone-obsessed society, it’s no wonder that mobile plays a huge role in the hiring process. But, shockingly, only 10% of businesses have optimized their job applications for mobile use! If you’re among the 90% that don’t have this strategy down quite yet, don’t worry. Greg Rokos explains how to know if you’re making the most of mobile, and offers tips for how to improve.
  5. How to Amplify Your Brand Voice With Employee Advocacy (The Undercover Recruiter)
    Most organizations know that using social media is vital for establishing a strong brand voice. But while many are focusing on the social presence of the company at large, they are missing out on a lethal marketing weapon: their employees. Sophie Deering discusses how companies can tap into their employees (and their nearly infinite social reach) as effective brand ambassadors.
