The article on TecHR‘s website was written by Sudipto Ghosh and covers an interview between them and Diane Strohfus, a CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) at the company known as Betterworks. The interview covers certain areas of her career such as how she got into HR, how she got her start at Betterworks, and what type of work the organization does.
Her start into HR comes off as pure chance as she started in finance before accidentally, as she puts it, coming into HR Technology. During her time as an HR business partner, she found herself working with companies that were going through their transitions where her duty was to work alongside the new leaders and help transform their organizations. She says that these experiences had become a sort of passion of hers.
This is what led her to eventually begin working for Betterworks, who opt to change organizations and their outdated work performance practices such as annual reviews. Betterworks encourages the use of a Continuous Performance Management method and uses it in a way that can let employees tie their work to key objectives much more easily. This way will pave the way for a more motivated workforce.
The name Betterworks is practically a play on the company’s main mission which is to create a better and much more motivated workforce for a variety of different companies that seek their help.
