30 Under 30

Audio Interview: Millennial Perspectives on HR

Listen to an audio interview in which 5 of this year’s 30 under 30 honorees—Mikyala Clayton, Dan Cross, Tiffany Helley, Myriam Nuñez and Joey Price—talk with HR Magazine editor Christina Folz about HR trends and challenges for the coming year.

If you have any concerns about the future of human resources, you can put them to rest now. As our first compendium of emerging leaders shows, the profession is in great hands. Here, we celebrate the creativity and accomplishments of 30 HR rock stars who knocked our socks off.

We started our search for the next generation of talent in the spring of 2016, when we asked the HR community to nominate their young peers for this special recognition.

After receiving more than 200 recommendations, the HR Magazine team, in collaboration with our colleagues in the HR and membership departments at SHRM, carefully reviewed and discussed each one. Every nominee impressed us, so it was a mighty struggle to narrow down the list. But we think the 30 young professionals we selected are a fine representation of diversity, innovation, service and leadership in HR.
