I guess I should start out with introducing myself…

My name is John H. Williamson and I am a human resources professional and this blog is dedicated to the advancement of my chosen profession. I have solid and proven experience in total rewards, employee relations, recruiting, employee development and ISO inception and maintenance as well as many other specialties that fall within the Generalist realm. Currently I hold 3 HR certifications – the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and Global Professional in Human Resources (GPHR) through the Human Resources Institute ( and the Certified Compensation Professional (CCP) through WorldatWork ( I serve and have served in leadership roles for HR organizations and have spoken at HR conferences and meetings.

I love HR and one of my areas of specialization is Compensation and Total Rewards. I have an affinity for numbers and strongly support HR’s progression from transactional cost center to transformational profit center.

I travel frequently, have a little miniature Dachshund named Belle, am learning Spanish and am working on a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at Webster University. I am sure my new experiences in these areas will factor into future entries.

I hope you find value in this blog and welcome your feedback, ideas and questions. Thank you and welcome aboard HR Boomerang!
