Nine HR Policies That Drive Good People Away

Nine HR Policies That Drive Good People Away | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

There is a particular, awful feeling you get working in a company that is sinking. You can tell the minute you walk in the door that the energy is off.  If you pay attention to the vibe you get on a job interview, you’ll know when a company is broken. People don’t look you in the eye. No one wants to be there, but you might take the job regardless if you’re out of other options.

Christa Wojo's curator insight, July 7, 12:00 PM

My favorite tent is "creative thinking is work." Being creative doesn't mean you have frequent moments of genius or insight out of the blue. It's a process of learning constantly, being resourceful with your knowledge, and being open to using it in novel ways.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, July 7, 3:24 PM

'However, while many people define genius differently, most agree that Richard Feynman was one and there is probably no better example of his brilliance than his famous talk, There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom. It not only launched a revolution in physics and engineering that is still being played out today, it shows us how a true genius really thinks.'
