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.

Jacque Vaccaro, HR Functional Shared Services, Siemens AG
