Why people hate HR and how we can change that!
Why (some) people hate HR and how we can change that!
We’ve heard it over and over again: ‘The people side of the business is key to our business success.’ ‘Culture trumps strategy.’ ‘People are our most important asset.’ With HR at the center, we need make sure we influence leadership, are financially savvy, understand our organizations thoroughly, in a confident, creative and knowledgeable way when it comes to the people matters -- because the people do matter! Have we lost our way? Can we find it again?
