Question about Speaking English rather than HR Image

Excuse Me . . . But What?

Have you ever been in a conversation where everything sounds like "la,la,la, . . . blah, blah, blah?"

That happens a lot when human resources and front line managers try to communicate about people matters in the workplace. It is tough, sometimes, to find the "to do" in the "what for" of the discussion.

An HR glossary probably lists the HR terms and define them for professionals. In most cases, it likely doesn't really explain what to do with that information in real life. Here at HR-to, we realize that you need a translation dictionary rather than a glossary of HR terms. The translations try to explain a bit more of what this term really means and how it might affect you.

Join us as we help everyone figure out how best to meet communication opportunities and challenges in the workplace.
