“Over the past eighteen months, GlobalHRstudio has rapidly expanded its membership base and grown to be an open platform on which HR professionals, transformation consultants and senior executives share news, insights, analysis, expert advice and case studies,” explains Patrick Gaspardo, Chief Editor of the online site. “Most recently we concluded an in-depth examination of Shared Services, analyzing it from the perspectives of leadership, change management, ROI and more. But quite frequently, we are approached by professionals who wish to contribute short bits of advice or tips on topics outside the one being discussed in our regular series. So now Espresso will allow just that. GlobalHRstudio members can access, on a more frequent basis, timely ‘shots’ of free advice to help them add kick to their transformation.”
