Busting HR Myths (Series) with Kim Nash: #1 HR is Evil & #2 Post It (and they will come)

Posted by: on August 4th, 2023

This is a six part series made especially for HR professionals and managers who wrangle with HR issues. Today, my guest and partner in this series, Kim Nash joins me in the first two of our six conversations in Busting HR Myths Series.

Each conversation is 30 min and builds on the central theme of how HR can create value in your organization.

These episodes will help you build the business case for HR and help you evaluate your organization needs.

We hope these episodes will stimulate more conversations inside the Pioneering Change Community as we build out content in the coming months.
