Does the workplace have a love/hate relationship with HR?

It’s a profession with the best intentions and the worst stereotypes. It’s often misunderstood. HR is responsible for every aspect of an organization’s most valuable asset—its workforce—and the pressure is always on. In their efforts to be credible, competent and compliant, human resource professionals can sometimes come across as being very inhuman

I watched in anticipation Sunday night as the best movie of the year was about to be revealed. l was pulling for Fences or Lion so I knew they would not win.
 
And, then Bonnie and Clyde, also known as Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, announced the movie of the year.  Beatty looked confused, knowing something was wrong.  He showed the card to Dunaway, who blurted out La La Land.

I know this may sound presumptuous, but I have one of the best HR jobs ever !! It has definitely been the best of my career. One of the highlights is that I meet weekly with my boss who is part of the C-Suite. Now, don’t start to shudder thinking this is going to be another one of those “seat at the . . . ” posts.

The work week starts and I’ll bet you do things in a certain pattern that has little variation. It’s great to be organized and have methods of doing your work. It keeps you efficient and allows you to perform.

The problem that creeps up on all of us ever so silently is complacency. Most people don’t even recognize that they’re trapped. We continue to do things the same way and never think that stagnation occurs. How many training sessions state that people won’t make change happen because things have “always been done this way”?

It’s always interesting to hear how the people management profession differs worldwide. Workplace laws, business culture and social mores vary country by country. What works in one nation, industry or even company, may not work in another because when it comes to managing people—the most complex but critical aspect of business—there is no one-size-fits all approach.

Still, some keys to HR’s success are universal.

This weekend I had to get my HR Nerd on and go see The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. It was phenomenal and you should absolutely see it in the theater for the best experience.  You may not be a Middle-Earth/Lord of the Rings fan, but I think the movies did a great job capturing the essence of the books that I have read multiple times.

Anything you can do, I can do better. That could very easily be the subtitle of a new report put out by The Hackett Group that highlights what differentiates world-class human resource organizations from their peers—or their wannabe peers.

World-class HR organizations are those that are among the top quartile of companies in both efficiency and effectiveness, according to The Hackett Group's benchmarking methodology.

How can HR become more strategic? Is there an opportunity for HR to have a much bigger impact on business performance?

A 2012 PwC study found that organizations are looking for leadership from HR. In the survey, 62 percent of business executives felt that human resources departments need to serve a leadership role in managing skill and talent shortages.

HR professionals encouraged to evolve, anticipate and help grow leadership  

How do you tell if your current leadership development and talent management strategies will improve your bottom line over the next three years?

By looking to the past and anticipating what’s next.

So says a new study from consulting firm Development Dimensions International (DDI) and The Conference Board, which includes survey responses from more than 16,000 respondents consisting of business leaders and global human resource executives.

Q.  What book are you reading right now?

A. "Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit" of Less by Greg McKeown.  As an HR professional you always feel the need to respond to so many people and you find yourself so stretched that you’re not effective. This book helps you to identify and focus on your top priorities to be more productive.

I have two HR philosophies; “Keep It Simple” and “Deal With the Problem”. My that I mean that people always seem so scared of dealing with something going wrong because they see it as conflict and that they will upset the person involved. The way I approach it is, something has happened, and that is what we need to address. I’m not going to belittle them, or attack them, we just need to address the issue as soon as possible. ~Leeanne, a dedicated upstartHR reader

We get so caught up, as HR professionals, in trying to justify our existence, telling anyone who will listen and tweeting to the Twittersphere, that we matter and we add value. We spend so much time that we lose sight of why we are really here for our organizations. We are here to cultivate and develop human resources. We are here to make sure these resources have the tools and environment to learn, develop and succeed. This may not directly generate revenue. This may not get us on the front page of our intranet or the cover of CEO Fancy, but it is our job. We choose to do this.

Part One:

At the 2011 SHRM national conference, former SHRM President Susan Meisinger chaired a session entitled, “10 Things Your CEO Will Never Tell You but HR Needs to Know.”  Why wouldn’t a CEO be compelled to tell the head of HR what they tell others who sit around the table? Why, why, why?

The core issue seems to be one of HR having both a longstanding identity problem and a fairly widespread public relations problem.
