Information is power. This is true in everything from war to business. Your Human Resources department is no exception. Understanding your HR situation is vital to keeping employees productive and meeting legal HR requirements. It’s best to get the right information and get your HR department running smoothly before anyone comes to you with a problem. A Human Resources Audit can help.

An HR Audit is a method for discovering areas within your HR department that could be adjusted or improved. The audit ensures your compliance with the law and helps avoid unnecessary government audits, which can be costly and time-consuming. An HR audit also promotes the well-being of your organization’s most important asset: employees. Employees’ productivity is directly tied to their happiness. That means their productivity is tied to making sure HR policies are up-to-date and working effectively–because those policies lead to employee happiness. Are your policies appropriate for your organization’s current state? Are policies being followed consistently across the organization? An HR audit helps answer these kinds of questions.

Leaders at all levels benefit from HR Audits. Strong HR practices define the culture of an organization, and they should be backed by every member of the organization, from the top down—not just the HR department. Poor HR practices are a minefield of potential issues. If your practices aren’t compliant, your organization could be wide open to costly employee or government lawsuits. Employees exposed to poor HR practices, or safety issues in certain industries, are likely to become dissatisfied. This can lead to a frustrating high turnover rate and bad reputation that makes it difficult to recruit.

Sewing your own clothes...?

Check out the blog called "New Dress a Day" (Just google it and it's the first one that pops up). It's amazing. It's a woman who lost her job and instead of getting mopey and complaining about it, she challenged herself to make a new outfit each day for under a dollar. She goes around to goodwills and garage sales and makes these incredibly outfits.
So, I got inspired and went out and boug...'t afford it, so I'll make my own stuff. Instead of sitting around complaining, I'm going to be proactive.
What I'm posting about is, does anyone know of any good sites that give hints on beginner's sewing and cute projects? And, to anyone who looks at her blog, are you amazed that she can take stuff that ugly and huge and turn it into things that people would spend hundreds of dollars on?

Todays activities

Thanks! I'm glad you like the idea. Craigslist won't let me post pics or links yet (too new an account?) but if you want to see pictures, I do have some listed on etsy. My store name is under the same as here, clevercrafter.
I spent the early afternoon hours searching through a coulple of Goodwills and Dollar Stores. No luck at Goodwill this week, but I did find some great stickers at the...great size to use on magnet sheets. I have them cut out and now all I have to do is coat them with polyurethane. Too cold outside today though!
Still working on the button brainstorming... I need to wait until my fiance buys a drill, then find some cheap plastic plates that I can use with the buttons to make clocks. Other than that, no more ideas yet...
What are you working on today?

Upscale houston neighborhoods?

Hello!
I am planning a trip to houston in a couple of days and would very much like to hit the goodwills and charity thrift shops in the city. I find that going to the old-money upscale neighborhoods of a city is usually my best bet; however, I don't know houston at all. Does anyone have any advice on what neighborhoods I should go to? Many thanks and happy New Year!

Sensible shoes

Make sure what you *do* wear is clean, bright, pressed, and SENSIBLE. anyone who works at a preschool and community center is going to be doing a lot of running around.
and i know this might seem silly, but check out any nearby Goodwills and/or thrift shops. you never know what you might find, and sometimes a nice jacket just needs a button sewed back on and a good ironing to look top dollar. Good luck!!

Having been recently in that exact situation...

I'm not sure what they are like where you are but where I am, Goodwill has an excellent suit collection for SUPER cheap - like $8 for a jacket max. You might have to spend some serious time digging through it all to find your exact size, but it's worth it. I've seen everything from Theory pants to Wet Seal, but Banana Republic is most common (where I am). Plus, you're recycling clothes which is great for the environment!
Hopefully the Goodwills in your area have just as great a selection.
