Top Ten Posts of 2010

As many of you know, this blog was launched in April, 2009, and was envisioned as a destination for international human resources professionals, a place where international HR pros could learn best practices, participate in discussions and share their knowledge.  We never anticipated how popular the site would be, but as of today, December 26, 2010, we have over 500 regular subscribers, and average over 250 visitors per day, almost every day!

As we come to the close of the year, we decided once again to look back and celebrate what we have accomplished as a community, and share with you a summary of the most popular content from the International HR Forum during 2010.  We hope you find this list handy, and look forward to hearing from you in the new year.
