Viktor says about himself that he does HR 2.0 – not Human Resources, but Human Relations. He co-founded the training company Growjob, which is highly focused on corporate cultures, and subsequently came to Rockaway. What interested me about Victor from the beginning is his completely different approach. He approaches HR in a holistic manner; he doesn’t concern himself with consequences, but rather with causes, and he works a lot with the environment and mainly with the people who create the environment.
