And if professional development is on your to-do list for 2022, we’re here to give you a head start. We’ve curated the top 10 HR blogs that will help you stay on top of the news, views and trending topics in our industry. And – bonus – we only selected blogs that are clear, concise and fun to read, so this is one resolution that’ll be easy to keep. Here’s our list.

HR Dive

HR Dive is your go-to source for all the latest HR news and views. Whether you want to stay up to date on new laws and regulations or learn about innovative talent programs from forward-thinking companies, you’ll find it all in short but info-packed posts on this frequently updated blog.


Need to do some background reading on sensitive HR topics? Head to the EVERFI blog for practical advice on everything from prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) and financial literacy for employees to preventing workplace harassment and handling employee layoffs with compassion.

Amplify Talent

Lars Schmidt is an incredibly active member of the talent community. He’s the founder of Amplify, author of Redefining HR and host of the Redefining HR podcast, where he regularly sits down with talent leaders to dive deep into the trends that will define the future of the field. Check out the Amplify blog for weekly digests from Lars that curate the latest news, trends and resources on all things people.


If you’d like to make fair chance hiring part of your talent strategy – or just learn more about this growing trend – be sure to bookmark the Checkr blog. In addition to actionable articles on topics like how to build a long-term fair chance hiring strategy and run a fair chance interview, you’ll also broaden your knowledge in related areas like compliance, security and candidate experience.


The folks at Lattice have created a treasure trove of helpful HR content. Browse through their Resources for Humans magazine for in-depth articles on HR strategy, managing people, employee feedback and much more. And if you’re curious about company and product updates and employee spotlights, you can find it all on the Lattice company blog.


How can your team best navigate this new remote and hybrid working world? International payroll, benefits, taxes and compliance platform Remote has an insightful blog that serves as a resource for all things remote work. You’ll find advice on everything from how to reduce remote employee stress to learning the value of international hiring for your business.

Harvard Business Review

While not specifically billed as an HR blog, Harvard Business Review regularly explores topics of interest to talent pros like management, leadership and even preventing burnout and becoming more mindful. Contributors often share their own case studies and results so you know their advice isn’t just theoretical – it’s actually grounded in research and data.


Got any tricky HR, payroll or benefits questions? Get them answered on the Namely blog. Whether you’re wondering about COVID or remote work-related topics like how to run contact tracing or set up a safe (but still fun) virtual holiday party or you’re just trying to stay on top of recurring HR events like open enrollment, you’ll find it all here.

LinkedIn Talent Blog

As you might expect, the LinkedIn Talent Blog focuses on sourcing, recruiting and hiring. But in addition to in-depth tutorials on topics like writing better job descriptions and sourcing underrepresented candidates, you’ll also find more lighthearted fare like holiday gift ideas for your favorite recruiter (full-body massage chair, anyone?) and an annual recruiting roundup in GIF form.


If you’re reading this, chances are you already know that the Greenhouse blog is the place to get actionable tips, tricks and insights into structured hiring, creating a compelling candidate experience, prioritizing DE&I and much more. But we figured we’d remind you, just in case!
