2010: The year things change? (Talking HR #023)


Yesterday’s Talking HR show (#023) looked back at 2009 and forward to 2010.  We were joined for part of the show by Alan Whitford of RC Euro:

I think the major theme of the show (which I hadn’t intended / designed) was that we (or at least I) do think things are going to start to change.  This may be an optimistic hope (to use Alan’s words), but as Tammy Erickson says, ‘changes won’t settle in this year, but they’re coming’.

Perhaps what we need most is some confidence to push the boat out a bit further than we have.  To do, as Chris Ferdinandi says, some amazing things.

Perhaps banks will even change their bonus policies next year!?
