4 Things You Absolutely Need to Know About McGraw-Hill as an Employer (2733 hits)
A blog post straight from the desk of our executive VP of Human Resources, John Berisford.
When I first heard that McGraw-Hill was looking for a new head of Human Resources, I immediately wrote down my impressions on the left side of a legal pad. Only several months later, after I met and talked to some of the employees and senior leaders, did I learn that everything I had written on that yellow legal pad was wrong. Here's what I found out:
1. We're not anchored by one great brand but dozens of great brands such as Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, Platts, McGraw-Hill Education, and S&P Capital IQ. For many McGraw-Hill employees, pride resonates in the businesses that they help lead or work in. You hear people say "I'm proud to work for Standard & Poor's" or "I'm part of Platts and The McGraw-Hill Companies." Those brands create an emotional connection.
Having several different strong brands provides significant advantages to us as a corporation. As the market changes, consumers change, opportunities change and having a portfolio of companies gives you flexibility to respond to the market whether in good or bad times and stabilizes your business model. These are great businesses with great markets that give us choices, and choices are always a good thing. You can have the organization thrive, and when it thrives, individuals thrive.
2. This place is a magnet for people with brilliant minds and expansive thinkers who able to deal with great amounts of complexity and make it simple. The first thing that struck me when I made the rounds here was how much intellectual horsepower is in this place. But there is also a diversity of styles, perspective, and experiences that all work here. With this very large bandwidth, this place is getting more progressive, more innovative, and more flexible. This is a mission oriented company that attracts certain kinds of people, people who want to play an important role in the economy, and influence the direction of people's lives in a positive and productive way.
