hr_stories

When two good friends / Professionals in HR meet what do they talk about the most? Do they talk about HR practices or do they share stories and experiences? Have you ever wondered why HR professionals are more passionate about sharing People stories?

Stories happen to everyone, a graduate who joins a team in few months could have a great story to share. Every one of us may not be able to share a unique HR intervention or strategy that we have formulated, but all of us can share one or more stories that can have great take away.

If there is one team that is inundated with people stories in any organization, it’s the HR team. We are the eyes and ears on ground and come across far more people stories than any other management function. The best part of sharing stories is, you don’t have to be a great orator or a Presenter. If the story is authentic and powerful, it will create earnest impact.
