Punk Rock Pixie Strikes Again

My favorite HR blogger by far is Laurie Ruettimann of Cynical Girl fame.

Today she talks about avoiding HR.  She’s right.  By the time you get to HR, things have often gone too far to fix.  And HR people really don’t want to manage your employees for you.   We’re happy to teach you how to manage better, hear your ideas for solving problems, and help you with your management strategy.  But, we don’t want to do your job for you.

HR’s true function should be focused on workforce planning based on company goals.  We are advisers, coaches, and yes, enforcers.  But we hate the enforcing part.  We’d rather help you prevent the pain in the first place – which explains why we get cranky when you want us to clean up your mess.

So, check out Laurie’s tips for avoiding HR.  They might change your world.  Or at least your day.
