Edi­tor’s Note

The HR Digest - - Front Page -

The HR Digest’s rank­ing of the ‘Most In­flu­en­tial HR Lead­ers Of The Year’ is meant to be a mea­sure of their enduring suc­cess. We track and an­a­lyze each HR Leader’s per­for­mance, their in­flu­ence, start­ing from day one of his or her ten­ure. Our goal is to cre­ate a list that goes be­yond the re­cent quar­terly and an­nual re­sults, and truly eval­u­ate long-term per­for­mance. Our view is that, in the mer­cu­rial cor­po­rate world, the per­fect mea­sure of an HR Leader’s work is not quan­tifi­able. Rather, it is re­flected on the hu­man side of the busi­ness, i.e. a com­pany’s cor­po­rate cul­ture and val­ues.

Fur­ther, in this is­sue, we de­bate the ben­e­fits of defin­ing a code of ethics and con­duct, which has been a long-stand­ing part of the cor­po­rate world. We dis­cuss why com­pa­nies fol­low the cardinal rules of cre­at­ing and im­ple­ment­ing com­pany codes, and its myr­iad prac­ti­cal pur­poses. Plunge in, Lead­er­ship In­shights, page 28-37!

Work­place Cul­ture, page 124-135, delves into the beauty of open-book man­age­ment. The most mis­un­der­stood fact about open­book man­age­ment is that one needs to share 100% in­for­ma­tion. Mis­un­der­stood fact’s like this is why com­pa­nies are still de­bat­ing the mer­its of open books to em­ploy­ees and ven­dors. The HR Digest sheds new light on the ben­e­fits of shar­ing some fi­nan­cial or op­er­at­ing data with key em­ploy­ees and ven­dors.

Among other things, we have, Le­gal Hub, page 88-93, the dif­fi­cult ex­pe­ri­ence of tak­ing dis­ci­plinary pro­ce­dure against em­ploy­ees and the le­gal im­pli­ca­tions it is not con­ducted thor­oughly and trans­par­ently; Q&A with Jane, page 38-47, your of­fi­cial canon for bru­tally hon­est, straight­for­ward an­swers to HR re­lated queries, and con­cerns an­swered by Jane Harper.

Happy Read­ing!
