Episode Description

The buzz: HR around the world. "American companies think they're the keepers of the best management practices. Consequently, they don't try to learn as much as they can from other places," according to Dr. Michael J. Marquardt, a professor at George Washington University. Whether you agree with him or not, U.S. HR leaders just might learn valuable lessons from the innovative and successful HR practices in other countries. The experts speak. Matt Healey, TBR: “England and America are two countries separated by a common language.” (George Bernard Shaw) Patrick Heffernan, TBR: “Inspiration is hard to come by. You have to take it where you find it." (Bob Dylan) Thomas Otter, SAP: “Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?’” (Thomas J. Watson, IBM). Join us for HR Makes the World Go Round: Practices Outside the US.
