All employees in all organizations hate HR.  They consider HR as nothing but a division that just recruits and does admin. This is the statement of a high profile professional(other than HR) employee. So what is your experience?

Please be transparent enough to share your views on this..

Pooja,

I would both agree with you & disagree as well.

Agree- because in most of our organisations te role played by HR is akin to a "policewallah" and all of us feel quite strongly about this breed esp. if you have been "lucky" enough to have had this nightmarish experience- HR behaves like that at many organisations.

Disagree- If HR is a friendly face/ facilitator in its truest sense then it is the most powerful positive change agent in that company- my own personal experience has proven that to me.

HR too believes that love me or hate me - you can't ignore me :-(

Cheers,

Kaushik

Hmmmm a pretty strong statement, but True in more ways than one I guess its because HR deals with people and not machinery - people are the most difficult to satisfy!!!

HR may be a thankless job, but its certainly the most gratifying for those who practise it with passion.

Hi....

If we read the book of HR Value by David Ulrick, and considering the function of HR as Employee Champion, the said statement may be quiet classic in its nature.

As an HR practistionare, we should be able to gain confident and trust from the Management and our Employees. It is true that as an HR, we should be in the management side, however, it is not the way to put it...for me as an HR, we should be able to bridge the gap between the management and the employee alike.

It is a hard and challenging tasks indeed, however, it is possible to do it. Further, in the said book, the author extended the 'HR client' (our client as of present is more on the CEO or our Big Boss and the staff) includes also the External Customer of our line of business.

The second opinion may be, we as an HR should be able to bring confident in our staff, so that we can be able to motivate them to work productively by our 'Human Touch' (a long with the term used Human Resource Practitioners-->we are required to be more HUman in our approach to our customers both external and internal)

Therefore the buttom line of this is the HR himself/herself...how are we going to approach our employee?

regards,

chitralekha

Well, I can say that HR is the most lovable and the hated department as well.

My experiences have been that, employees when they have some real problem either personal or professional, HR's door is the one to be knocked first. However, this may not hold true when it's a group talk and it;s the only forum where employees may talk ill of HR.....

Anyway we needed to be a little strong to bear this for anything productive....
