The CYA Report E59: When HR Leaders Leave HR for Greatness [PODCAST]

What’s up people? If there’s one thing that intrigues HR pros, it’s doing something other than HR.  I was lucky enough to spend some time on this week’s podcast with one of my favorite crossover HR pros, Katy Theroux.  Katy’s done it all after starting in HR – operations, marketing, etc.  She’s a rock star who was prepared for doing things outside of HR by – wait for it – working for great HR organizations and great companies that didn’t restrict her related to what she could do in HR.

No restrictions meant lots of tinkering.  Which led her out of HR, but I’m mounting a one-man campaign to bring her back.

If you’ve always thought about making the jump to another speciality from the world of HR, then this podcast is for you.  Details below.  Check it out…
