Maxed out

BBC HR boss Valerie Hughes D'Aeth tells People Management she's become news-sensitive.

“Since I joined, we’ve had the Scottish [independence] referendum, the general election of 2015, the Brexit vote last year and now another election. Our journalists are focused and maxed out on providing the content that’s needed. You can’t just move ahead [with plans] as you’d like to – you have to stop and say it’s not pragmatic to do something at the same time that the newsroom is coping with Brexit. That’s something I probably haven’t had to deal with in the same way in other organisations, but it’s paramount that we factor those things in here.”
