HR Makes the World Go ‘Round: Practices Outside the US – Part 2
March 11, 2015
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: HR here and there. HR practices in Western countries can differ significantly from Eastern countries in terms of organizational structure, motivation, communication and conflict resolution. Whose are the most successful? According to professor Dr. Michael J. Marquardt, "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." Is it time for U.S. HR leaders to take a page from other countries’ HR playbooks? The experts speak. Patrick Heffernan, TBR: “With malice toward none, with charity for all…” (Abraham Lincoln). Allan Krans, TBR: “Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to” (Richard Branson). Thomas Otter, SAP: “When we hold a World Championship for a particular sport, we invite teams from other countries to play, as well” (John Cleese of Monty Python). Join us for HR Makes the World Go Round: Global Practices – Part 2.
