Aitch Are Gives You...
Blog number 1 of...erm...I don't really know.
What's my pitch? Experienced senior HR professional, worked for multinationals large and small, and have really seen it all... In amongst the dense Forest of Mediocrity, I have seen the occasional ray of sunshine.
All the companies I have worked for have had a policy on getting prior clearance before you can post anything, so to free myself from those particular shackles, I am going underground. Shh... Don't tell anyone...
Why "People Matter[s]"?
Because they do. And because I will be sharing thoughts around all aspects of people management.
HR is about getting, growing and keeping great people. It really is that simple, and yet most companies make a complete pigs-ear of the people piece.
New systems, projects, policies, and initiatives tend to be justified and communicated on the basis of savings, efficiencies, process improvements, productivity, compliance, etc. and the very last consideration tends to be the first thing that should be asked in these situations - i.e. "how will it improve the working lives of our employees".
So my mission is to simplify the world of work by debunking the enormous industry that has sprung up around HR.
Watch this space...
Best to you all.
