WME Printed Article: The Dark Art Of OD

5th August 2019

WME Printed Article: Actions Are Louder Than Words

#LoveyourHR - Blog

18th July 2019
If you are a regular on social media, you may have seen the start of a movement called #loveyourhr. Like everything we do at WME, we did not want to do things by halves and we thought HR needed a bit of a facelift and a bit of momentum around loving what we do. We therefore designed our own virtual campervan which you will see driving around on twitter and LinkedIn to pick up as many people as possible from both inside and outside of HR and across the country to tell us about their experiences and share knowledge across the public sector and beyond. The beauty is it is free to view and we have attracted some great bloggers from Chief Executives to Heads of HR and everything in between. Hopefully this shared network will provide some insight into the challenges that we feel as a sector we are facing and offer strategies of how we engage the all important people side that sometimes gets forgotten. On our journey, we are quickly realising that people love HR more than we thought!
