August 12, 2019 - 2 minute read

Frontline by Speakap is a community for progressive HR leaders to share (and learn) ideas and strategies for creating a thriving workplace, to therefore help all employees reach their full potential.

This is the ninth episode of our podcast series, which features a wide range of experts and industry leaders to discuss topics related to their individual expertise.

In this podcast we chat about the evolution of Human Resources function within corporations, why people might have a negative perception of their HR departments, data-driven HR and simple strategies to help your business thrive.

“HR is like the CIA. You only hear about them when they mess up. Good HR does all the things behind the scenes, but nobody sees it.”
