Hacking HR: The New Employee – Employer Compact

Welcome to our new feature entitled Hacking HR. We are developing content specifically to help non-HR professionals navigate the system to gain access to coveted jobs.

Why Hacking HR? Executives and company founders create new positions within their firms while entrusting HR as gatekeepers of those jobs.

Hacking HR will expose non-HR professionals to specific operational advice – tips you can immediately begin using – to enhance both the quality and earning ability of your professional life. Learn from an HR insider on how HR decides on who passes through the gate and who does not.

In our first installment of Hacking HR, we present an 18-minute webinar explaining why this new feature is even necessary. You will learn how the Employer-Employee Compact of past decades has been eradicated with many firms still acting – to the detriment of its employees – as though no such radical transition has taken place.

Today’s new employer-employee social compact has not been explicitly acknowledged, although it’s now an implicit part of today’s economy.

  • Learn about the new compact that openly recognizes jobs are not permanent, but the employer-employee alliance can be permanent to the benefit of both.
  • Leverage the new business reality by making the business case why your employer should encourage – and pay even pay you – to build networks & expertise outside the firm.
  • Leverage your former company by either joining or even establishing an active alumni network.

Once you understand this new compact, we believe you will agree that hacking HR – ethically of course! – is more needed than ever.
