Writing a Love Letter to Talent [& Why We Have Weird Job Postings]

Manager of Talent & Perks at HNI 

We’ll own up to it: our job postings are kind of strange. Check out our careers page, and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

We get questions and comments from applicants all the time on this. Some positive… some a little bewildered.

So for the record, we wanted to clarify why we take this approach, and why we recommend to our clients that they do the same.

Reimagining the Stodgy Old Employee Handbook

Director of People at HNI

Employee handbooks are largely viewed as a necessary evil.  They are a compilation of policies, forms, benefits details, and of course, language to CYA in the event of an employment dispute. 

We painstakingly drag our new hires through these, make them sign off acknowledging they’ve read every word, and then it sits on a shelf gathering dust.

This is a missed opportunity.
