A Great HR Lesson at Penn State

Penn State did the right thing. They fired head football coach Joe Paterno and president Graham B. Spanier.

It mattered to the 22,000 other employees of the university. And it matters to the 60,000 students who attend Penn State. It was a message that values still matter.

How the Board of Trustees handled this awful situation says a lot about about them a what PSU stands for.

That was a great HR decision. And it’s a lesson for all of us: Standing up for what’s right is always the right thing to do.
