Episode #15 – Everything You Wanted to Know About Why HR Sucks Featuring Jillian Walker
One day last year I began following this HR professional from (Calgary at the time) now Vancouver. She sounded smart, shared a lot of great content, and actually talked to other people! She had me at retweet, I was sold.
I find it fascinating that the average online company (in this comparison) has an 11 year life span and Facebook is in it’s 8th year of existence.
Below is an infographic of the historical depiction of the life cycles of six (at one time) empires of the online world. (Aol, Yahoo!, Alta Vista, Myspace, Digg, and Facebook).
Great question. I think businesses should be skeptical, lot of bad ones out there. If a consultant (or consulting company) can’t justify the value they will provide, then you shouldn’t hire them. And not every business needs a consultant, but you never know until you talk to one.
I’m a big fan of self education and these videos shared by a friend on Facebook were very enlightening. I think you can learn a lot from them. There’s four videos (they’re actually just audio on Youtube), roughly 10 minutes each. I know, long hey? Sorry. But it’s roughly the same length as your TV favorite show, weird.
And you’re going to learn a lot about your mind. Let me know what you think (haha! Not literally).
