The virtues and values of an organization are tested during key events—for example, how new hires are onboarded, how they are treated when they need time off, and how they are supported when they are let go. These moments express the true spirit of an organization, and one HR professional refers to them as “moments that matter.”

A journey from the courtroom to the boardroom initiated my entry into Human Resources. After I got my California bar, I had an opportunity to intern at a lawyer’s office in Palo Alto.
