Seems HR gets more than their fair share of abuse. From HBR running their ongoing series on why HR sucks or how HR needs to change to why everyone hates HR. What exactly did HR do to Harvard Business Review? Please apologize so we can get some good press going for HR. HR is the department (and the people in some cases) we all love to hate. For too many, HR people are like politicians. Necessary but not wanted. The blame for every problem – and yet the source of every solution. HR has to be friends with the CEO while still buddying up to the rank and file.
And it is going to be a bigger problem from here on out.
