Here’s part of that piece.
HR is not dying.
I would agree it is bifurcating to a certain extent, from a blended generalist type function into several smaller more specialized areas, like talent management, etc,. But there is still a need for someone to do the shit work that line managers hate when it comes to dealing with people. There is also a need to ensure that the bad managers out there be required to stick to some form of cultural consistency and conformity.
I think too many HR people hunker down and develop a reactive mentality to issues. We need to stop trying to avoid disasters and litigation.
HR peeps need to step out and make shit happen.
When you do that, you are at the table, whether you got invited or not.
BTW – the invites are not coming any time soon. You have to create the opportunity. Same holds true for authority and respect. And you have to work to hold on to them once you have them. They are pesky and disappear quickly.
The great companies out there typically have great HR departments under the hood somewhere. But there is also a lot of “What have you done for me lately?”
Do the work.
Make shit happen.
HR rocks anywhere that happens.
It still sounds like sound advice to me.
I think the HR conversation has shifted in the blogosphere over the last five years. Our echo chamber has expanded. We have more champions of HR like Steve Brown advocating the joys of our profession. SHRM has adopted social media as an effective means of sharing knowledge. New bloggers have come on the scene, adding their contributions.
We rarely talk about tables any more. That’s true progress.
Keep up the good work, HR!
