1. Yes, oil well firefighting is as epic as it sounds.That’s a quote from American oil well firefighter 1 Red Adair.

When I first read this quote yesterday evening, I thought back to a spotlight interview I had with Ned Lloyd a few weeks ago: In it, he said that the cost of poor HR management can be extremely high.

HR is often an undervalued support function, but when it’s gone it quickly becomes obvious that the role is an integral one.

…Food for thought as we get started this week.

Happy Monday.
