New Blogpost: The language of panic and pandemic – from an Ethical HR Perspective

Since the Coronavirus took hold and forced us to think about how closely we connect with others, those of us in HR have altered our vocabulary somewhat.

Happy Birthday Cherington HR!

Cherington HR recently had its 14th Birthday on Easter Sunday - although with everything else going on with the Covid-19 pandemic over the last few weeks, we haven't really felt like celebrating (not yet, anyway). However, when business gets back to "normal" (whatever the new "normal" looks like) we'll think of some way to commemorate the achievement. We survived the global financial crisis in 2008 and are still extremely busy, so are simply grateful for that and would like to take this opportunity to say, "Thank you," to our clients.
