by Alan Collins

While scrambling to finish up a project for a client, I stumbled across the three awesome videos on YouTube — that every HR pro should watch.

I’ve posted them below.

It’ll take you just 22 minutes to view all three.

But the insights you’ll learn about HR’s role and what we bring to the table…are simply BRILLIANT!  

So go grab your favorite beverage and check them out.

If you’re busy right now, bookmark this page and come back when you have time.

But DO watch them. 

Even if you’ve seen these before, view them again.

Or share them with your HR colleagues.

Or your boss.

Or pick out one to spice up your next HR meeting.

They are classics.

In any event, check them out below and ENJOY!
