[Excerpt] How does an HR practitioner manage a company’s talent pipeline through a period of social, economic, and environmental volatility? Last week, Hugh Mitchell, Chief Human Resources & Corporate Officer of Royal Dutch Shell plc, discussed this issue with students and faculty at Cornell University’s ILR School as part of the CAHRS Executive Guest Lecture Series. Mitchell argued that organizations needed to develop stronger, longer-term employment strategies in response to unstable periods of recession and growth.
