Summer is (sadly) now behind us. School is back in session. Work life is back in full swing. To help you gear up for the fast pace of Fall, here are 18 of the most-shared HR articles. Their common theme? HR that doesn’t just execute, but leads and drives meaningful change.
Consider the female CHROs profiled in the January/February issue of Workforce Magazine: The CHRO of a leading strategy firm changed the company’s perception of turnover based on a holistic assessment of the market situation. Another from an insurance company focused on changing the gender status quo to improve diversity.
In addition to profiles of disruptive HR leaders, many of the articles we found contain how-to advice and research geared towards reinventing HR. We also found commentary on hot button topics like the highly publicized Uber scandal, which remind us of HR’s vital role.
If you are looking to shift gears and dive into a busy Fall season, check out these widely-shared pieces on subjects ranging from recruitment and engagement to performance management:
