Why join the HR Operations Council?

It is really nice to be able to talk about this topic with other people who live it, breathe it, understand it: close the door and be really open because of the Chatham House Rule. That collaboration and kindred spirit is something special.It is really enriching from a personal standpoint. 

The gift is having this ability to pause and step back and use this time to network, bouncing ideas off peers, and calibrating.
