    Un Saludo cordial desde Cali, Colombia.

    Sigo su Blog hace algun tiempo y aunque soy musico debo reconocer que no entiendo muchas de las cosas que comenta.
    Entiendo de antemano que es para cierto tipo de publico con alguna formacion especifica en el area de Recursos Humanos y afines, pero, lo poco que he podido entender me ha servido resto…
    Simplemente queria comentarlo y Felicitarlo por la muy util informacion que aqui se trata, algo acida y dificil de digerir a veces, pero muy certera e inteligente.

      Muchas gracias, Samuel, lamento que a veces se te haga difícil leer los post, también me lo ha dicho alguna que otra persona de fuera del ámbito de los RRHH, pero es precisamente a ese nicho al que se dirigen.
      Gracias por visitarnos, un cordial saludo desde Madrid.
