Please don’t…

From one HR professional to another, please don’t suck. Really. We could have our own SNL sketch on it.

My take is that we tend to forget about the “human” part of the job description. Yes, we have to pay attention to law, process and procedure. But we can do that nicely. We can do that with humility, grace and good humor. And in a way that it actually becomes appreciated. So that’s it. Remember we’re all human and it’s our job to manage our human resources.

So let’s review.


Remember we’re all human
Be nice
Show humility and grace
Treat others as we’d like to be treated
Be strategic
Follow the law
Have a sense of humor
