Feature Parts I & II | What’s the first thing you’d change – Editorial Advisory Board Poll #1

This issue is a real treat, like a present about to be unwrapped where you can’t wait to see what’s inside. We’ve got ten multi-dimensional voices from business and HR answering a singular question:

HRExaminer-eab-logo-white-bg-200x78pxHere at HRExaminer we’ve been assembling a very interesting crew of contributors (our Editorial Advisory Board) who are writing original work on HRExaminer every week. Now we’re beginning a regular series where we poll our EAB on central topics so we hear what leaders and expert practitioners are thinking about HR, Recruiting and Talent Management. That’s what our EAB Poll’s are all about and this is the first one.

Before you dive into this week’s issue stop and consider your own answer to our question. We’d love to hear your opinion. Drop us a comment here on our website or @ us with a tweet or a comment on Facebook. Then please read the responses from people like Jay Cross, Kris Dunn, Todd Dewett, Paul Hebert, Rusty Rueff, Claudia Faust and many more. It’s a treat. Read More
