I think it’s amazing when people can marry passion with profit. I’m not sure if the bulletproof backpack is the next big thing, but it’s an interesting combination of perceived need in the marketplace and innovation.

Are you the kind of person who believes that your employer has a big, secret way of paying its executive leadership team and another way for paying the peons? Do you fear that your compensation is directly related to the fact that your boss doesn’t like you? Are you convinced that your annual review process is biased and built around phony statistics to show a false differentiation in performance among colleagues?
Well, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.
In then upcoming weeks, I’ll lift the veil and share my Human Resources secrets with you. For example, we’ll discuss –

- how the only developmental opportunities are the ones that you make for yourself.
Are there corporate and HR secrets that you’re wondering about? You can email me at punkrockHR@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to answer your questions!
