“If we listen to the rhetoric, the function of HR is progressing nicely along the path to being recognized as a strategic business partner within organizations and a critical player in the overall corporate cycle. In my experience the rhetoric doesn’t match the reality.” Read Neil McCormick’s article, My three wishes for HR and business in 2017.

Different Kinds of Difference

On December 26, 2016, in HRExaminer, Joe Gerstandt, by Joe Gerstandt
Diversity means difference. Rather than continuing to copy and paste hollow and lazy phrases such as “we celebrate and embrace the rich diversity…,” we can consider that difference shows up in a lot of different ways and we need to understand what kinds of difference have value to us and why.
