You’re reading this blog because you are curious, searching desperately for information on how to actually have a seat at the table or simply pissed off after reading the title.
This is the introduction to a journey in which I want to challenge you to jump on the wagon to recovery from our HR nightmare! The purpose of the discussions are not to have you throw in the towel and make the jump to operations…..or even worse…sales, but to have you look at not only your position, but the entire HR profession in a different light.
A little about me – I am a head strong, determined and extremely impatient millennial.
Before you stop reading, I promise we do have more to offer than our flex time off and endless texting.
I’ve spent the first part of my career literally struggling with every aspect of not getting a seat at the infamous table, the keys to the conference room that holds the table, but simply just being heard. I’ve ran into countless roadblocks, have had more than one screaming match with a superior and even went as far as to counter to my compensation review because that’s why people never make more money right? Because they are too chicken s#%t to ask?
These blogs are not designed to give you a ready-made check-list of how to get in the C-suite but detail what we’ve done wrong, why we insist what we’re doing is right and how to get out of your own way.
If you’re ready to accept what we’ve let the HR Profession become, completely re-think what it means to be an HR Professional and help pave the way for Generation Z, and those after we decide to put in boxes, then please stay tuned.
If you’ve found nothing of interest so far, please save yourself some time and delete so you can get back to completing payroll, open enrollment or finalizing another policy your managers will never enforce.
