NO. I am not an HR expert or a MakeOver Specialist.
My interest began in HR as a Headhunter in ’93 when I went for a lecture presentation by a Hewitt PhD about ‘Predictive Techniques in Recruitment’ . It continued. I liked the Base Questions in NHRDN like ‘ Why People behave the way they do?’ .
In our B School we took a project on a very large company going thru a violent strike and came out with a finding that ” People bring the Behaviour of their surroundings and Re-create it at the Workplace too!” It was fun !
Over the years, I Selected, Recruited, Inducted, Trained, Coached and Mentored many and got Coached by very Senior Executive Coaches. My interest in the subject continued. I liked the ‘Strengthsfinder’ book by Marcus Buckingham and the technique used.
Now, I feel, sometimes very strongly that the time has come for HR to ‘Reform, Change, Reconstruct and Re-shape itself’. My first PSU MD was a Ex Harvard Professor and he changed the function Personnel Management and IR into Human Resources Department and said the first thing to know is HRD = Humane ! I wish it was as I learnt over the course of next 30 years of Corporate life that HRD wasn’t ‘Humane’ at all. And that’s my personal opinion.

Bottomline – May be it is time for HR Experts to take a Sabbatical and break from the profession for a Month, Quarter or a Year and Develop a Humane Reserve System ( No I won’t ask for a Copyright on this term) and RePosition HR. Trust me, when I say this – your presence will be least felt by business if you take this well deserved break ! Come back in the New Form and you may even become an Equal Business Partner in the C Suite ! Amen !
