Hundreds of HR professionals are sharing #mypathtoHR on Twitter

Inspired by the examples of other professions – including medicine, the civil service, and law – more than 200 tweets have been tagged #mypathtoHR in less than a week.

The originator of the social media trend is Lesley Campbell-Stephens MCIPD, senior cohort leader, Civil Service Fast Stream, at the Cabinet Office, who on 24 January tweeted:

“I think @CIPD should copy and get people doing #mypathtoHR now too!! Lots of ‘I fell into it’ stories, I fear!!”
