Bio of the TieDyedGuy

Welcome to my home on the web.

I created this website as a place to put out my writing on the topic of Human Resources. Since 2011 I have been heavily involved with running of a Human Resources department for a Manufacturing company.

My background before than was over ten years of Information Technology and a little splash of Accounting. Also, from 2009 to 2011 I was completing a Masters in Business Administration. The challenge to setup and run the HR department was unexpected but I like to rise to all challenges.

I quickly discovered that all MBA students feel as though they can do Human Resources easily. I was hoping to find that true, but what I found out is that most MBA students and most employers expect a Human Resource company to do nothing more than party planning & payroll. What I learned is that to run a HR department that is top class, it is a lot more about development and involves a lot more IT than I expected.

So since 2011 I have been slowly changing the idea of what an HR company does at my company while also spending my time helping out employees all over the United States with questions they may have. I am a main contributor at Reddit's /r/AskHR subreddit and have been for a while.

If you have any questions, please email me here at TDG@tiedyedhr.com , I am always glad to help!
