HRevolution is an industry-changing conference in the US for the human resource industry founded by Trish McFarlane and Ben Eubanks. It began as a single tweet on Twitter as a way to bring HR professionals, recruiters, CEOs, and other industry leaders together to discuss the current state of human resources and where the industry is headed. HRevolution has produced EIGHT highly successful events since 2009.  The next HRevolution will take place in St. Louis, MO on November 7th and will be  sponsored by Globoforce and Quantum Workplace.  The goal of our conference is to help bring people together for discussion and networking while keeping their out-of-pocket cost very low. Many of our participants pay their own way to HRevolution, so it’s the generosity of sponsors that enable us to host this conference. For more information, go to our site:

  1. I have just read your post on spatial skills, and I am not quite sure what you mean when you talk about spatial skills. My spatial skills are my abilities with regard to imagining the behaviour and movement of objects in 3 dimensions in real time. For example, a mechanical system I am currently designing needs to behave in a certain way, and I am able to imagine various different versions of it moving according to their configurations, and thus I am able to select the one which best fulfils the design task.

    I have a long history of designing and trouble-shooting complex machinery, and my ability to see the operation of all components in my mind is very useful. This is what I refer to as spatial skills.

    I am not sure what you mean. Please explain.

  2. Hello- Thank you for the question. The article was about visual-spatial skills specifically, not just spatial. In the context of the studies I read, it was used to refer to skills in seeing the big picture and take in/ process and create using visual skills to add dimension to the learner. In a way, your second paragraph hits on some of the ideas from the articles. It was about the ability to visually imagine the big picture based on operation of all the components. 🙂

  3. Good Day Trish

    Thank you stacks for all the points provided on employee exchange program.

    I have just one question, I work for a huge organisation and would like to know as to what the business benefits for an employee exchange program are/would be.

    My company is looking at embarking in this phenomenal exercise but are not sure if this will benefit the company.

    You immense assistance in this regard would be appreciated.

    Thank you.



  4. @Banda, Thank you for the comment and question. The benefits are numerous. Some to consider are it acts as a training for the employee to learn a new skill or area of the company, it can help fill needs in a department while looking for someone to fill a position, it can provide greater engagement because the employees on rotation are meeting more people in the organization. It can also serve as a way to get employee feedback on specific departments that they do not normally work for. There are many more, but hopefully these get your organization thinking about giving it a try.
