We’ve all got our buttons – that if pressed, are guaranteed to get us over-reacting. One of mine is when I’m asked the question ‘don’t you think it’s important for HR to have a seat at the top table?’

I think what gets me agitated about this – is the assumption behind the question that, unless we have the recognised positional power that comes with a Board place or being a member of the Exec – that we are unable to wield influence. Which I think is frankly, rubbish.

In this short video, we look at how you can build influence and credibility in HR without having positional power.
