    Our long national nightmare is finally over.

    No, I am not talking about the Republican campaign for the Presidential nomination, but the NBA lockout that for a time flirted with what would have been a disastrous cancellation of the 2011-2012 NBA season. But at the last minute a deal was made, and in the words of the legendary Walt Frazier, their will be swishin' and dishin' and posting and toasting in the NBA this year.

    Now that the labor issues are settled, and (most of) the wheeling and dealing is done, the National Basketball Association is set to embark upon its season with a full slate of marquee games on Christmas day.

    And since the Association represents probably the most interesting, compelling, and downright fun set of characters, storylines, and athletes in professional sports today, the HR Happy Hour show in partnership with The 8 Man Rotation, (Kris Dunn, Tim Sackett, Matt Stollak, Lance Haun, Steve Boese),  will devote the final show of 2011 to a full-on, no lame attempts to tie sports back to work or HR, preview of the upcoming season.

    What will the late start, short training camps, and compressed schedule mean for the league? What teams made the sharpest moves in the off season? What clubs are ready to win now? What teams might just surprise this year? What players are on the decline and who is on the rise?

    The teams, the players, and the predictions for the NBA in 2012 - you will hear it all and more on the HR Happy Hour Show this week.

    The NBA - this week on the HR Happy Hour. It will be a fun departure for the show this week and I hope you will join us!

    This week on the HR Happy Hour we will welcome our friends from TLNT.com, Editor John Hollon and contributing writer Ron Thomas to the show to talk about the fast approaching TLNT 'Transform' conference coming up in Feb. 2012. According to the TLNT team, "'Transform' will be an experience unlike any other HR event you have ever attended. Why? We’ve designed Transform to prepare you for the challenges and changes you’ll be facing tomorrow and beyond, not just on the here and now."

    The 'Transform' event is brand new, and chances are you might not be aware of how this first TLNT event aims to create an exciting and engaging opportunity for HR leaders and professionals. So we will talk about the event, the ideas behind what makes an Human Resources event valuable, and what people can expect from TLNT Transform.

    Also, we will look back on the year of 2011, from a HR and workplace perspective. What themes, stories, and events really shaped the year, and how might things look in 2012.

    The TLNT crew is always on top of things, so it should be a fun and interesting show and I hope you can join us!

    It used to be that technologies were invented and popularized first in giant organizations or in large government and university research labs, before these new inventions and ideas could begin to influence and impact the private citizen. Access to information and computing power tended to be scarce, expensive, and highly protected.

    Fast forward to today, where the internet, mobile access, social networks and other factors have combined to shift the flow of technological change and progress. Now, individuals have access to tools, platforms, networks, ideas, and each other in unprecendented ways, and in a manner that is changing the way we work, and the way the HR organization of the future will have to adapt and support their companies.

    Joining us to tackle these questions will be Yvette Cameron from Constellation Research who will provide insights from Constellation’s latest research and their ongoing investigation of the Future of Work and its impact on people, processes and technologies. Yvette has a true passion for disruptive technologies in people processes, and doesn’t hold back when it comes to the responsibility of HR in driving transformation change across the organization. Join us for an engaging look into the future of work, and the resulting future of HR as it faces unprecedented levels of change.

    It will be a fun evening and I hope you can join us!

    This week on the show we will be joined by industry thought leader John Sumser from HRxAnalysts to talk about some of the findings, implications, and highlights from HRxAnalysts latest research report 'The 2012 Index of Social Technology in HR and Recruiting.'

    John will discuss the role and current state of social technology for HR and Recruiting today, how social is impacting the practice of HR and Recruiting, and perhaps to even debunk some commonly held beliefs about social in HR. Think as a socially savvy HR pro you already know everything you need to know about social and HR? Well, perhaps not, and either way tuning in to learn more about this rapidly changing and evolving space is probably a good idea.

    The research is fascinating and important,and John is legendary for telling it as he sees it, so you won't want to miss this show about Social Technology in HR and Recruiting.

    It will be a fun evening and I hope you can join us!
