Women of HR were asked, “If you were CEO for a day, what would (or did) you focus on to improve an organization’s productivity, employee engagement or ability to recruit?” This is the sixth post in the series of responses.
I’ve been pondering on this subject for some time. I have thought of some of the usual answers that we HR professionals might have, “Heh heh, CEO for a day! Let me get out my list, and let’s start making some personnel changes!!!” “Policies, job descriptions, performance reviews – everyone. NOW!”
But are those ‘evil’ HR thoughts realistic? No. Rarely, does the CEO please everyone, and sometimes must make hard decisions and take risks based on a broad spectrum of knowledge. So, if I were CEO for a day, this would be my immediate plan.
