6 HR Quotes To Inspire

The past few years have presented many challenges, but we have all worked to adapt, move forward, and navigate through these difficult circumstances. As we enter into 2023, it is a time to start anew and be inspired. Here are 6 HR quotes to help guide you through the year ahead:


“Train people well enough so they can leave. Treat them well enough, so they don’t want to.” – Sir Richard Branson.

Investing in employee training and creating a positive work environment is crucial for a company’s success. When employees feel confident in their abilities and are treated well, they become loyal, dedicated team members and may even serve as brand ambassadors for the company. Providing ongoing training and fostering a supportive atmosphere can help retain top talent and ensure that the team is prepared to meet the demands of their roles.



“When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home.” – Betty Bender

Allowing your employees to be themselves at work is essential for creating an engaging, high-performing, and fulfilling company culture. Recognizing and valuing your employees as whole individuals have become increasingly important in the current job market. This demonstrates that you care about your employees beyond their work, and can lead to higher levels of loyalty, advocacy, and recommendations.



“When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.” – Simon Sinek

Employee engagement is crucial for the success of a business. Studies show that more than 60% of the workforce is either “not actively engaged” or “not at all engaged” in their work. When employees are not emotionally invested in their jobs and workplaces, they may only do the minimum required and may even leave for a slightly better offer. By focusing on employee engagement, companies can keep employees emotionally invested, which is a key factor in business success.



“Every problem is a gift—without problems, we would not grow.” -Tony Robbins

Challenges and difficulties present opportunities for growth and development. Without them, we may not recognize or appreciate success. When issues arise in a company, they highlight areas that require attention and action. It’s important to approach problems with a positive and proactive mindset, as they can serve as opportunities to improve and strengthen the company.



To build a rewarding employee experience, you need to understand what matters most to your people.” -Julie Bevacqua


To create a positive and effective work environment for your employees, it is essential to listen to their feedback and concerns. This can be done through regular one-on-one meetings, surveys, and casual conversations. By gathering input from your employees, you can gain valuable insights into what they need and want, and make changes that will truly make a difference in their work experience.


“Hire character. Train skill.” -Peter Schutz


Employers highly value soft skills, or personal characteristics, in addition to technical skills. 77% of employers believe that soft skills are just as important as technical abilities. While a candidate may have the necessary skills for a job, their personality and character may not align with the company culture. While skills can be learned, character and attitude are harder to change. It is important to prioritize both when hiring new employees.
