It was a great conversation punctuated by tips and advice from more than 15 HAPPO champs across the country. Smart PR counselors such as Anne Buchanan, Abbie Fink, Richie Escovedo and Shonali Burke weighed in. As did more HAPPO champs and supporters like Mike Schaffer and Kasey Skala.
Here are responses to six of the questions that I thought were particularly interesting and smart:
What is the hardest thing about being the newest employee in your company/department?
• “Trying to figure out the culture and how your co-workers like to work.” – John Muscarello
• “Also figuring out the different personality dynamics not just on your team but within the company.” – Britt James
• “A company/organization’s culture may take some time to learn. Your skills at adaptation and change will be crucial.” – Richie Escovedo
