I was listening to Masters in Business and discovered Patty McCord. Patty is former HR head of Netflix. She doesn't speak HR she speaks innovation. Listen to the MiB episode with Patty Mccord here. It is worth it. THIS is what HR should be.
- Ask your HR manager if he/she knows what is your job like day-to-day. ( analyse financial statement, work on new toothpaste launch, etc.) it has to be specific.
- Does he/she know who are your clients?
- How do you make money for the firm? How much?
