Corporate HR Strategy in 3 Simple and Easy Steps

Step 1: Send out a meeting request to all HR leaders — sorry managers, you aren’t really leaders; we meant Directors and above (unless there’s only six people in HR, then you Directors aren’t invited either).

Step 2: In meeting — decide on what the agenda should be for the meeting. Reschedule meeting.

Step 3: New meeting – Change every process we have, be more efficient, be more strategic, be more technologically savvy, implement an entire new HRIS system, create a new employment brand, only hire top talent, kill our “C” players, institute pay-for-performance, design a completely new performance management system, revamp the hiring process, and update those employment posters back in the break room.
