Wrapping up the Year in Thanksgiving for HR ... En Hommage...
As People in the United States gather in Thanksgiving, we share our special thoughts with People around the World.
A New Year is here and looking back and forward, a few things come to mind when it comes to how we should treat our Human Resources: simply, humanly. It seems obvious but we often miss the obvious. Let's shine the light on three main points:

I am also convinced that there is a linkage between those elements and branding. The interesting fact is that no matter the philosophy of the company, no matter the policies, all will be reflected by, or through its managerial staff.
