What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?
As HR professionals, we have a duty first to understand principles that will enable success; and secondly to share those in a way that supports the improvement of the individuals and the organizations we support. “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough yourself.” ―paraphrasing, Albert Einstein
