I see this as a not-necessarily-bad thing. I've definitely met HR people I think should be fired (yes I'm talking about physical security vendors). Modern corporations have overly chirpy social network/PR machines so almost any signal visible to ipvm.com is suspect as just noise, no matter the vendor or clue level. Disclaimer: I don't know the context so I'm not claiming to offer a truly informed opinion.
That may be true but you're much better off replacing someone half a year into the job than wait a couple of years and wish you did it sooner.
Another senior Avigilon HR person has left. She billed herself as "Team Avigilon's #1 fan"....
While soft skills like HR are hard to measure, I generally would run.....fast....from any HR candidate with a résumé that includes words like "Youth Advocate", "Social Responsibility". I would also question naming the positoin "VP of 'People'". How can you even say that without giggling?
