Sartain has written a book that is, in her opinion (as of 2003), the first one written “by an HR practitioner for HR practitioners about managing your own unique career as well as dealing with the special challenges of daily life in the world of human resources.” As she explains, most of the stories she shares are taken from her 13-year tenure as Vice President, People at Southwest Airlines.

I am inspired to start to be proactive in getting bette

This is the best HR book I have ever read. It sends a clear message that HR practitioners have to always remember the human side of what we do. Sartain shares some great stories from her awesome experiences.

Buku wajib di tempat kerja. Bagian yang paling menohok adalah bab yang ngomongin tentang "Kapan Anda Seharusnya Berpikir untuk Pindah Kerja". Hehehe...
