Episode 40: Human Resources (HR) as a life and skill builder with Yuri Kruman

My guest today is Yuri Kruman. Yuri is the founder and CEO of HR, Talents & Systems. In today’s episode we talk about the misunderstanding of human resources and how we should think about it more as a life skillset vs something that only big companies think about while entrepreneurs and other business owners don’t.

Before HR, he worked in a wide range of functions, including Product Manager, Business Development, Finance and Operations and Special Projects. Yuri is also the author of What Millennials Really Want From Work And Life and Be Your Own Commander in Chief.
