This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve and Trish break down the 2006 Film “The Devil Wears Prada” one of the great workplace movies of the last 20 years. “The Devil Wears Prada” is the story of how the just-graduated journalism student Andrea Sachs is hired to work as the second assistant of the powerful and sophisticated Miranda Priestly, the ruthless and executive of the Runway fashion magazine. We dig into the movie’s explorations of HR and workplace ideas like hiring for culture fit, paying your dues at work, the importance of finding the right workplace mentor, and how it is to work for a tough minded, domineering boss with extremely high expectations.
This was a fun movie with lots of work and workplace ideas weaved throughout its story. Subscribe to the HR Happy Hour wherever you get your podcasts.
