A Corporate Culture Moment


This is the first in an occasional feature highlighting some head-scratching examples from today’s corporate cultures.

Here’s a job ad from the BBC, as discovered by Private Eye Magazine.

“The HRBP (People Development) is a role within a specialist team that provides deep expertise and thought leadership, developing pan-BBC frameworks and policies that enable the achievement of our organizational strategy and objectives. The role will typically be aligned to a Division. This role will identify pan-BBC and Divisional capability requirements and align strategy, talent and processes to optimise effectiveness and achieve organization performance goals. The role will design interventions to drive the appropriate culture, behaviours, skills and performance and drive the strategic ambitions now and in the future.”

Ah yes – an interventionist culture driving gig.
