Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Brenda Neckvatal. Brenda is an experienced Human Resource professional and business consultant with vast experience spanning 30 years. She’s worked for five Fortune 500 corporations, consulted over 450 C-Suite Executives, and led the reformation of HR infrastructure within 400 small businesses. She’s also the Host of the Best Practices in Human Resources Podcast where she covers current HR topics, news, and trends impacting businesses of all sizes. If you’re looking for Human Resource consulting services or you’re a Human Resources practitioner who needs an experienced soundboard, Brenda has you covered. I’m excited to discuss with Brenda how organizational leaders can thrive through the COVID19 pandemic and face their human resources challenges head on during this tremendous time in human history. Brenda, welcome to Get Up Nation®!
