Who is Kris Dunn? That’s an easy question – He’s a VP of HR type who has led HR practices in Fortune 500s and venture capital-held startups. He works for a living, and believes that the key to great business results is to get great people, then do cool stuff to maximize their motivation, performance and effectiveness once you have them in the door. As it turns out, that’s his simple definition of talent management. He believes that all forms of HR and recruiting administration should be squeezed down to the smallest amount of time possible, giving you more time to do stuff that matters. Kris is currently the Chief Human Resources Officer for Kinetix, a national RPO/recruiting firm based in Atlanta, and the Founder/Editor-in-Chief of The HR Capitalist and Fistful of Talent. When he’s not working, Kris can be found on a basketball court attempting to teach his sons the crossover dribble.
In late 2018, John began working on a presentation centered around the key concept that the best human resources professionals he knows have a unique understanding of the financial and business side of their organizations. In fact, some of the best are business people first and human resources professionals second. After delivering the fourth presentation to a local SHRM chapter the idea for writing a book was born. And everyone knows the best way to write a book about gaining expertise is to talk to the experts. These chats build the foundation for “HR Like a Boss” the book while providing game-changing advice from those conducting human resources “like a boss.”
