Why bother?

HR Simply-Engineered

chainHow often do you take time to question the reasonableness, or idiocy, of what’s being asked of you and your team? When’s the last time you made a substantially complete inventory of all the things your HR team does? Do you think all of it serves a relevant purpose? I'm willing to bet a lot of it doesn't. But the only way to know for . . .

A Call to Maladjustment

HR Simply-Engineered

water pumpOn 1/18/2010, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Bethel College played for the first time a recording of a speech Dr. King made on its campus. It is the only known recording of this speech and they were lucky enough to track down an alumnus who brought his own reel-to-reel recording equipment to the auditorium that day 50 years ago. How cool is . . .

You can't win for trying

HR Simply-Engineered

train gearRemember when we all used to run around as HR professionals shouting from the top of our lungs how we must strive toward “employer of choice” status. EOC was the HR buzz term for the late 90’s and early 00’s. I grew up in the industry drinking that cool-aid. Don’t get me wrong; it’s a good idea to try and create an environment where your . . .

Think Small

HR Simply-Engineered

shovelWhat if the next big thing for HR isn’t big at all? What if it’s right in front of our noses? It’s not about technology, it’s not about certifications, it’s not about programs, it’s not about social media (ok, just pretend for a moment), it’s not about how we educate and develop leaders, it’s not about how we manage risk, it’s not about how . . .

HR is a Commodity, Make it an Experience

HR Simply-Engineered

wrenchIf you’re in business, generally you sell a product or a service. That product or service, based on a multitude of factors, is received by consumers in some experiential way. On one end of the continuum, you have a “commodity.” You can get it at a number of places, it’s pretty much the same wherever you get it. “Goods and services" come . . .

Nonsensical HR

HR Simply-Engineered

windmillI caught a tweet the other day from a student who suggested that even though she had a big HR exam the next day, she wasn’t stressed because HR was “common sense.” I fumed on this a bit. Then I realized I myself have made a career out of HR and never once took a HR course in school. I started as a CPA…a profession not well-known as an HR . . .

HR is where Smart goes to die

HR Simply-Engineered

cameraI came across a Tweet one day that said “2 years ago I met a HR manager…really smart. After 2 years, smart turned stupid!” Aside from being quite pithy – and I’m a fan of pithy – I started to wonder whether there is something to this notion that being part of an HR department can quite literally suck the smarts out of you. I’m not sure if . . .
