Combination of teams focusing on what is important (not trying to produce countless pages of PowerPoint), automation of tasks and no internal politics.

It's a noble goal to pursue the "no politics" culture. But in reality, any people's business is bound to have some bad agents who will rock the boat and have personal agendas. Assuming, these situations will happen, what is your approach to resolving "win-lose" types of scenarios when it comes to promotions, distribution of work and rewards?

Internal politics is hard to fight but if you don’t let it take hold then much better - we are in the lucky position of having a clean piece of paper to work off and build EOS. I think if we have awareness of this as a massive drain on energy and time we can fight it from the start.

Been out of consulting for 6 mo. now. Still have dreams replaying all the times people were asked to cancel holiday, women were demeaned, the ethical gray areas, and I didn't speak up. Therapy time?

Do you ever get conscious telling people that you work in HR? I feel like there is a stigma against our profession.

A few weeks ago I had a boss make fun of me on a call for looking “gloomy” and he wouldn’t let it go. He kept yelling in a joking way at me to ‘cheer up’ in front of others on a zoom call. I wasn’t being rude, just quieter that day, as I was going through a mental health issue. . It’s been eating at me the way he bullied me on call - should I say something ? I feel a 55 year-old man should’ve learned not to do this by now... don’t know how to come at it without seeming whiny WOC...

We break our backs for firms like EY and others. Yet our so called prestigious firms go for health insurance that doesn’t even cover for basics such as flu shots. The corporations are literally jabbing it in our neck!
