In episode 26, we sat down with Cassidy Gonzalez to hear about how to innovate common HR processes and practices to make them not only better, but fun for everyone involved.
Episode 26
As a field that is often associated with strict rules and regulations, HR is actually a pretty innovative and creative place to work. But don’t take it from us. Take it from Cassidy Gonzalez, Vice President of People at Pura. In this episode, we sat down with Cassidy to hear about how she and her team have discovered opportunities to innovate the way things have always been done in HR. We also talked about:
  • Why innovate is more than just a corporate buzzword
  • Why she thinks HR is a field that can be innovative
  • How Pura has done things a bit differently when it comes to interviews, orientation, team structure, and exit celebrations—and how fun it's been to take an innovative approach
