HR Brew – When asked by HR Brew what’s on your wish list for the holidays, Maggie Smith, Traliant’s Vice President of Human Resources, named a novel and something that you can’t buy but can always return.
Here’s an excerpt:
For the HR pro in need of an escape.
This past year has been a tumultuous one for workers in the people profession. And while some may not want to unwrap a book this season, Maggie Smith, VP of HR at Traliant, suggested gifting an easy “read they can get lost in.” She’d love a copy of The Lake House by Mikaela Bee.
Above all…Remember: A gift doesn’t have to break the bank. The HR professionals we spoke to would be grateful for a cup of coffee (caramel latte, please), a flexible schedule, or a good old-fashioned “thank you.”
“Receiving a thank you note from an employee or colleague about how you helped them or made a difference in their professional journey would be amazing,” Smith said. “It keeps HR professionals going, and reminds us that we are making an impact.”
