January 14th Class Reflection

In class today we watched the movie about Pike's Place Fish Market. It was a very interesting clip, I learned that no matter what industry you are in or what type of work you do you can really stand out. The way they created such a fun and enjoyable atmosphere by getting everyone involved and buying into it. It also changed my perspective on employee training, in the clip they talked about coaching and that everyone coaches everyone. Instead of the traditional training where it is done either by supervisors or by specific trainers. This increases the cooperation of all and creates more of a team atmosphere where no one is better than anyone else and all can equally contribute.

I also like the discussion on HR supporting the strategy of the company. There is sometimes a feeling that HR is a separate part of an org. that just makes sure the company is in compliance with laws and manages benefits, but there is so much more HR can contribute to the company if the management get them involved and the HRM are capable.
