    Organized and Informative


    I’ve worked in people management in the government/nonprofit sector for about 7 years but I am not in a formal HR role. I found Daniel’s content in this course to be organized, clearly communicated, and informative . Some of the content validated my preexisting insights, but the level of detail really added clarity to HR considerations, processes, and systems related to compensation, particularly in the private sector.
