Former Google HR Chief Laszlo Bock Aims To Revolutionize People Management With Humu

Laszlo Bock is one of the most famous heads of Human Resources ever. Part of this is that he lead HR at Google, and he initiated a number of innovative practices, many of which were captured in his book, Work Rules!: Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead.

Part of the reason why other HR execs have not become household names is that companies do not think of HR as being as strategic as they should, and therefore the Chief Human Resources Officer is not on an equal footing with the other “chiefs.”

Two and a half years ago, Bock co-founded a company, Humu, that helps CHROs among other executives ensure that teams are as productive and as happy as possible. He has leveraged his experience at Google and GE before that along with the work of prominent academics to develop what Humu refers to as “nudges” or reminders, timed at just the right time to impact behaviors in a positive fashion.
