We had a saying about the human resources department at a company where I once worked: “Human Resources — they’re not human, they’re not resourceful.”
It was funny, because it was true. The woman who headed that team didn’t look like Catbert though — she looked more like Alice, and she was entirely humorless. I’ve never met a more insincere person in 20+ years in business — and I work in public relations!
I contrast her with another HR director I worked with at another company. Linda got into HR because she truly cares about other people. She’s passionate about hiring the right people, getting employees the training that they need and helping people achieve their potential. Plus, she cuts through the HR jargon that the Society for Human Resources Management propagates among its membership.
Our product is explanation. We make complex ideas easy to understand using short and simple videos.
Lee and Sachi’s jargon-free videos are made in with a Tim Russert style whiteboard and paper. That’s it. They call their style, “Paperworks”. I call it effective.
I think they’re onto something.
