A Catalyst for Change

By Christina Ioannou

2020 has been a year of change, especially for HR teams across the U.S. as they navigate the effects of COVID-19. As a result, HR managers have completely shifted how they evaluate candidates and the overall qualities they view as desirable.

CEO’s Letter: “W”ells “T”he “F”argo and “Cultural Rot”

HRO Today

By Elliot H. Clark

I have been chided before by our editorial team for sinking my fangs into a provider here and there. I have rarely commented on the HR practitioner audience. Throughout 2020, there have been numerous important HR-related stories. From HR’s response to the coronavirus pandemic to the role of HR in social progress with California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5), HR has been at the forefront of the business news.

How do I loath thee? Let me count the ways. Four years ago, Wells Fargo was embroiled in a series of awful headlines about creating fraudulent banks accounts and loan accounts. At the time, CEO John Stumpf, who later resigned in the wake of these scandals, blamed overzealous employees trying to maximize their commissions and succumbing to greed. This was cold comfort to the thousands of customers who had to actively engage in credit report repair and who were being harassed for loan payments on accounts they knew nothing about. Stumpf at the time promised an overhaul of Wells Fargo’s culture and compensation schemes to avoid this happening in the future. Hold that thought as we move chronologically—we will come back to that issue after we take a side step into a recent diversity and inclusion fiasco.
