Human Resources Gurus for Q2 2019: CakeHR’s A-Z HR Experts List for the Second Quarter

We’ve got a great list of A-Z HR gurus who sure know how to get ahead of the competition (and stay there)

It’s already the end of summer and the second quarter of the year has just come to a close, so of course it’s time for you to take a look at which HR gurus have made our new A-Z list!

Our HR gurus this time around are based internationally across 11 different countries and are working within some of the world’s most recognisable, leading organisations such as, Uber, Facebook, Google, Nike, Olympics, Volvo, Snapchat and so on;  companies which regularly feature on blogs due to having top ranking HR departments that give them a competitive edge.

Competitive advantage means positioning your company ahead of other companies in order to achieve superiority in quality, low cost, value or innovation. Regardless of what it means to a company, it may be the single factor to attaining success and business sustainability. – Scholley Bubenik, Contributor to Forbes

Your employees are ultimately what positions your business ahead of other companies and give you the competitive advantage, because without them working in-line with organisational goals and meeting targets, customer service would be at a low and your bottom line would take a hit.  But for your employees to be super engaged, diverse, inclusive, productive and motivated is highly dependant on your HR teams ability to develop strategies and practices that work.

Our A-Z HR gurus in Q2 already have experience of making it to the top and staying there, so they are definitely worth giving a follow if getting ahead is high on your agenda.

And here they are:
