We here it all the time:
“They’ve got to much to lose to take that kind of a risk.”
Or statements similar to this.
As I travel out and about on the fall HR conference tour (most State level SHRM conferences happen in the fall) I’m reminded constantly that Big HR Shops (Fortune 500 companies, Big Government, Giant Non-Profits, etc.) are not who you should be turning to for the next great HR ideas. Maybe you can turn to them for Best Practices – but is best practice – where you want to be? Best Practice is by it’s nature – solid and fully vetted – for years. It’s great HR from 5+ years ago. Safe. You can’t go wrong with Best Practice HR. But please stop trying to act like it’s “great” HR – it’s not – it’s more of the same HR.
