How Can HR Demonstrate Value as a Business Partner

There’s a common thought and saying that some things can’t be done alone. We all need help and most of the time we’re too shy to ask for it. Either that or we’re too arrogant and reluctant to ask. The thing is, when we do ask for help and we receive the right type of help, we usually thrive better than we expected if we were to complete the task alone. Because you’re exposed to ideas and knowledge you never would have come up with on your own.

Written by: Kerry Hall. There is an article trending in my home town about a 5 – year old girl who dressed up like a Hot Dog on “Princess Day” at her dance studio. Why, do you ask, would she do this? My response is, why not? Why not challenge the status quo? When asked about her reasoning, her response was that she loves princesses, but wanted to be different. That simple statement led me to reflect on how this type of thinking and ideology would go a long way in the talent acquisition market.
