Recommended Links & Websites
With the millions of websites and blogs out there, we want to share a few that we trust and rely upon to support HR and OD leaders and professionals.

We include major HR and OD professional associations, some of which you may be familiar. The professional associations offer online education, professional certifications, resources and forums/conferences to build networks and increased capacity in members and non-members. Additionally, the individuals and groups in our blog list represent those who bring a novel lens or perspective and have a particular interest in the support of our profession. We hope they’re insightful to you! We will be adding to both these lists in the very near future.
