They may get the headcount number right, but consequences for the culture and teamwork will eventually impact company performance.

Do You Know What Your Values Are?

Posted by Mathew French on 24 June 2014

All this talk about values got me thinking : I wonder how many of us, HR Professionals in particular, actually really know what our own personal values are. Why do we do what we do, and what gets us out of bed in the mornings?

Why Work? Where we work? Happy at Work and Home!!!

Posted by Mathew French on 25 March 2011

This is a topic that is very dear to our hearts. It really underpins why Subscribe-HR was founded. The truth is, it was founded for many, many reasons. Some very personal.
