The Gift of No

On June 20, 2018, in Editorial Advisory Board, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing

“Shouldn’t we learn from others and determine the most effective way to reach our goals, benchmark our progress, and achieve success? Best practices are only best if you’re just practicing. And I have no clue what a benchmark really is, or what you do with one.” – Heather Bussing
