 What is upstartHR?

upstartHR was created as a resource for “in the trenches” HR professionals to grow in their craft and remain passionate about the HR field.

I love just about everything about HR, and while it’s not my only love, it’s certainly something that I enjoy immensely. Want to know more about the guy behind this thing? More about Ben Eubanks

My goal for upstartHR is to become a place for new human resources professionals to learn about the profession from someone who is doing the same. It’s a place for:

  • Experienced pros to see old ideas in a new light

  • Finding a kindred spirit who’s fighting the same battles

  • Advancing in your HR career to new heights

I cover many topics on upstartHR, including book reviews (leadership, management, recruiting, HR, etc.), best practices, what it’s like running a small HR department, recruiting tips and techniques, innovative ideas, and more. I’m also a big proponent of HR certification and have developed resources and tools (some free, some not) that practitioners can use to prepare for, and pass, the PHR and SPHR exams.

Together, we can push HR to its rightful place as a strategic business leader.

I’ve been in the HR field for only a few years, so when I started writing I had a fiery passion that attracted many followers who had been in the profession for some time but had lost their “spark.” I still write with the intent to challenge others to never be content with their own level of success. I truly believe we can all learn and grow until the day we die, and if we want to remain competitive and innovative, we must continue learning every single day. I have created several free PDF guides and tools to help my audience run a smarter, stronger HR team.
