I Woke Up To A President Trump > This Is What HR Can Learn


It’s the day after the election at Daxko (where I work), and lots of people have taken PTO. It is remarkably quiet in the office. Interesting.

I don’t write about politics. I’m not educated enough on that topic to be anyone’s voice in politics.

I vote issues, not party. That means I’m not entertaining – which means many wouldn’t find me politically read-worthy.

But I am someone who thinks about leadership, HR and talent management. I am an HR Pro whose job it is to help people through change. I am also someone who knows that team members come to me for advice on how to help people struggling with life/work events. And, by the number of people who took PTO on Wednesday (on both sides of the aisle) Tuesday night was a pretty big event in many peoples live.
