One of the best things about being an entrepreneur is the opportunity to craft your company culture. It’s also one of the hardest, because - let’s face it - you can’t dictate a culture.

The new year can present an uncomfortable task for HR managers, who may find themselves having to say the following to underperforming employees: “Happy holidays; you’re doing a terrible job.”
On December 5, 2012, we hosted a Nextchat titled “HR’s 2012 Performance Review” with special guest Eric B. Meyer, and it was such a hit that we’ve brought it back for an encore presentation.
