HR – Make Some Noise!

HR – Make Some Noise!

I was talking to a CHRO recently and he was talking about the perception that people in their organisation had about HR. He went on to say “if you want to be thanked for what you do at work, don’t go into HR!” He went on to say that people in HR need to “get over the fact that they won’t get a lot of recognition and that if they think that they are going to be thrown flowers and gifts for their work in HR then they should get out of the function now.”

The Future HR: Five Essential but Overlooked Questions

The Future HR: Five Essential but Overlooked Questions

The future of HR is inextricably entwined with the future of work, leadership, society and organizations.
