Happy Wednesday!

It is not human to read every word I write about People Analytics and HR-Tech. I am realistic in my expectations of my human colleagues and friends. However, I have much higher expectations from artificial intelligence in this context. Specifically, I expect full coverage as well as comprehensive feedback. Grammarly exceeds my expectations. Based on last week's feedback, it turns out that a quarter of my texts are full of joy! And so, I have no choice but to joyfully share this!
