Time to recharge

Dear Laurence,

Thanks to a generous, forward-thinking employer, I am about to take some time off work on a sabbatical. While I am looking forward to the time away, I know I also need to keep up to date with HR and the profession. Aside from HRM Asia, are there other resources you can recommend to help me stay connected?

Time to recharge, Singapore

 

It’s great that you have the time to recharge. But also take some time go to some of the networking events you are of normally too busy to go to. Join a local HR Association, or go to some of the HR committee meetings of the different Chambers of Commerce. There’s a very rich vibrant HR networking and learning community here in Singapore and also in other centres of Asia that you may visit.

Do you have a couple of mentors that you can have lunch with on a quarterly basis? They should be guiding you on this journey.

A key thing on a sabbatical is rethinking what is your journey, and what is your purpose. Where do you want to get to when you get back, and therefore what are you doing in the meantime to realise those goals?
