We Know Next is finding and interviewing HR Motivators at the SHRM 2014 Annual Conference & Exposition. Below is a Q&A with HR professional Josh Rock.
Q. What advice would you give other leaders about employee engagement?
Like Nike's tag line states, "Just Do It!" It's when you have the chance to engage employees and affect their "corporate life" that you take things to a new level. Take the time to put a deeper value behind the people in your company and the will do the same in their loyalty and productivity.
Q. How do you think HR can positively affect the culture at their organizations?
HR doesn't create culture, but brings it to the forefront of the organization. HR professionals have the enviable opportunity to take what might be a quiet thread and make it the most attractive component of the company.
Q. What social media platform do you use the most for your job and why?
I personally like and use Twitter more than the others. It allows me to rock out content in short, but valuable bursts and to engage job seekers and fellow HR pros.
Q. What advice would you give to people who would like to work in the HR profession?
Join us! Bring your passion & excitement each and everyday to the most valuable profession in business.
