Changing Nature of Human
Resource Management
Jack Welch- Winning (Chairman and CEO
of General Electric between 1981 and 2001)
“Elevate HR to a position of power and primacy in
the organization, and make sure HR people have
the special qualities to help managers build leaders
and careers. In fact, the best HR types are pastors
(preachers) and parents in the same package.”
“The head of human resources at any company
should be at least as important as the CFO.”
