I am deeply concerned when HR in certain firms treat their own fellow HR employees badly. I have come across too many examples of underhand treatment and sudden removals without chance of improvement. Some love the “putch” approach of removing HR bosses and whole teams associated with them in a couple of days.
Others cut staff levels significantly, while simultaneously increasing work volumes and run a culture of fear and intimidation. Unsurprisingly employee engagement suffers. Yet these HR employees have to look after others and engender HR best practice in their global organisations.
Let’s strive to lead by example and have HR mean the highest integrity and quality in treating others not ” Human Remains”.
