They are constantly publishing new research, blog posts, books, and are active on LinkedIn with articles, updates, among others.

Push ideas forward
They are able to take an idea, a word or any topic that is leading the current discussion and go beyond a simple trend, inspiring others to action.

They stand out from the rest and are capable of generating debates, discussions and conversations on topics of interest for Human Resources to enhance knowledge and mutual learning.
