It Was Worth to Sleep 5 Hours

As soon as I arrived to the conference venue, I was welcomed by a lady in charge of VIP and speakers. She seemed happy to see me & asked me enthusiastically if I knew in which seminar room my talk would take place. “Yes. Seminar room 3 & it is tomorrow” I said. “Great! I am now taking you to the VIP/Speakers lounge so that you can eat or drink something.” she added. One part of me longed for breakfast in the lounge. The other half of mine responded: “Thank you. Actually, I would like to directly go to the keynote area to listen to the keynote talk.”,

The key reason, we found, for prospective career seekers to choose Learnnovators over competition was because we offered them something that most organizations did not… the FREEDOM TO FAIL!!!

Even though the ranking and the names of the companies in the list change year by year, there are some companies who persistently stay in the list. (To access the list of 2014 please click here)

In the previous weeks I attended a presentation on the future of Human Resources. The presenter was Evrim Kuran who is well known in Turkey for her researches on generation differences in the business life. During her presentation she mentioned a research entitled “Lighting the path to sucess” conducted by Hay Group in 2012.
