Internships for Montgomery County Public Schools
John Waterston, a former Human Resources executive at the World Bank, and our newest member, talked about the the transformation of the Human Resources profession, from mainly administrative tasks to more strategic responsibilities. John mentioned how artificial intelligence and data management have automated many staffing and recruitment efforts. But he also mentioned the growing importance of Human Resources professionals at corporations, nonprofit organizaitons, and government, and how they help define the “corporate culture.” John cited recent developments at one large tech firm—Uber—and how the corporate culture had created a number of serious issues at the company. John will be a great addition to our club—Dave Fitzwilliam already has signed him up as an advisor on his internship project.
