Patty McCord

Netflix’s Former Chief Talent Officer, Patty McCord, doesn’t believe in Chief Happiness Officers, does not see hard work as enough, and believes HR should simply scrap policies that do not work for them. Patty McCord, author of Powerful: Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility, joins us to discuss her experience as Chief Talent Officer at Netflix and her fringe ideas that led to establishing the multi-billion dollar tech giant everyone knows. From performance reviews to challenging policies, Patty joins the Talent Angle on this episode to share insight on equity in the workplace, how to make HR a strategic function, and ultimately how to build employees who are proud of the company they come from.
