HR people are, for most practical purposes, neither strategic nor leaders.” Keith Hammonds, Fast Company, Why We Hate HR, 2005 “To be sure, there are some firms that do HR well, such as Cardinal Health, Yahoo, Procter & Gamble and General Electric. But Keith's scathing magazine piece still rings true three years later.” Peter Galuszka, CBS News, 2008 03/11/14 3Copyright © 2012, Corporate Performance Strategies, Inc., All Rights Reserved
