6K buzzes
A Human Resources generalist, manager, or director plays a wide variety of roles in organizations. Depending on the size of the organization, these HR jobs may have overlapping responsibilities. In larger organizations, the HR generalist, manager, and director have clearly defined, separated roles in HR management.

    #7 Very interesting comment @Stephane 🐝 Fenner. Some people use the peels of orange, lemons and even water melons to flavor cakes or as a fodder for animals instead of throwing their leftovers. What I mean we may still be kinder to employees once we squeeze their last drop of juice.

    #4 Thank you for expressing your views so clearly dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Using "foreign" metaphors may help in seeing new perspectives. The selection of a metaphor is subject to few shortcomings. I tend myself to use different metaphors and then compare perspectives. I published one example on using four different metaphors for leadership and each one gave some unique perspectives even though they had many commonalities among them.

    Interesting, @Ali Anani. I never considered this perspective, but I must say your analogy is clear. Here we also compare employees with lemons managers squeeze. When they don't give juice anymore, lemons can be thrown away.
    In both analogies, the result is the same: demotivated and unproductive staff.
    In corporations, who is supposed to avoid such situations?

    I am not comfortable with cooking metaphors for employees. Employees have been cooked for generations. We should be focused on the cooking of managers because so many of them these days are half-baked by poor HR practices. Add to this popular adages like "you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar" are being myth-busted, for we can catch more fruit-flies with vinegar https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4562214/ Maybe the actual problem of work is that managers are more sweet and sour than they are managers. This also explains HR failures like employee engagement rates and value destroying employee appraisals. Even mentoring is being re-examined in light of new evidence. It seems that politics is rather late to the fake news and alternative facts, it seems that our resolve to solve employee issues have had the HR profession practicing this form of sorcery much longer than present day politics is now discovering now we have the first CEO president.

    @Ali Anani A great analogy Ali. Managers can indeed stir employees too much to the point of being counterproductive and in worst cases burnout. Burnout is something I see more and more. Perhaps the chase after budgets, performance and company objectives all contribute - but a manager can do a lot to "soothe the pot" and prevent burnout among his employees. The wise manager observes individuals carefully and knows when to stir and when to soothe.

    Great perspective @Ali Anani. You always succeed in putting life back into business. And by that I mean that for me, you remind us that every aspect of business involves people and people are organic and not objects. If one is to create a team as if putting together a board game with pieces, then the team is set up for failure before it even meets for the first time. Dr. Ali, by discussing team members as ingredients and that they have qualities or properties that influence the "taste, texture" and outcome of the "recipe", you remind us very strongly to be aware of what we put "into the mix" when it comes to business. Thanks again for a very enlightening buzz.

    Wow.... that's all I can say, just, wow (and not in a good way)

    First of all, in this economy, I doubt there are many single-income households left. I see many young people starting their families making the tough choice of who, if either, stays home with the kids.

    Logically, pay your female employees more and they may be the ones who continue working.

    From what I see when out and about, stay-at-home Dads are nearly as common as stay-at-home Moms... that is to say not very common at all.

    Day care costs are so high that working is sometimes futile.

    Workplace by Facebook has all the right elements to scale. They have pitched it perfectly with the notion of collaboration. This is a 21st Century idea which is a simpler way of saying "Network Intelligence" or "Alliance" which as ideas of Reid Hoffman are brilliant, but Facebook have taken all that and messaged it brilliantly. They see the blue ocean that LinkedIn has failed or maybe even does not want to attract which is lower-skilled workers - just as beBee found its blue ocean in global markets that LinkedIn never thought about..

    According to Fortune Magazine http://fortune.com/2016/10/10/workplace-facebook/ Facebook have penetrated and has been adopted by over a 1000 organizations. LinkedIn left the barn door open for them and all I can see is a big blue bull but it is a paid subscription model and that is a recipe for more strategies that try to lock users to their platform. They already have had their knuckles wrapped for trying to lock "free internet" in India to their platform, but the Indian government saw that coming from a mile away. This development is indeed interesting to watch as it now unfolds, and ironically at a speed which Reid Hoffman calls "blitzscaling". Know what is Momma Microsoft gonna do to Father Facebook???

    Sandra, thank you for getting that out. Yes, I agreed with you seeking for worthier employer who has a passion to challenge their organization and you to grow. I had had my share of roadblocks and the best that I had learned from all of these experiences is to adapt my principles with the company and project's mission and values. I had also learned to toned down on my energy to fit-in with the team to respect their intellectual and professional levels. I also tried not to give my boss more work then they needed unless they had specified to me that they wanted to seek all avenues to accomplish the project beyond current expectations. I gave all that I had into my assigned work and if my boss does not see it's benefits, sadly it's his/her lost for the organization. I had left my share of bosses, because I never go above my boss unless upper management has open door policies and encourage employees to go talk (no email) to them with confidentially. - Proverbs 13:10 - thanks - Ryan Chuebeyang

    @Sandra Smith If I told you what happened to me on the job once, it would curdle your blood. It led me to contemplate suicide. It all started because I saw my boss do some things that were abusive and unethical, and I went through all the proper channels, starting with my boss. What I learned from that fiasco is HR works for the company. It doesn't matter if HR knows that you are right, and is compassionate towards you. Ultimately, they go with who butters their bread. (sorry HR peeps, don't mean to disparage the whole HR business) It doesn't seem to matter that my boss actually broke labor laws. I also learned that VP's and President's who say they have an open door policy really don't. I learned that bosses and VP's lie. That may prompt someone to say, duh...but I haven't really come across that in my career, so needless to say, it was very disappointing. I also learned that having a mission statement is bunk if you don't follow it, or back it up. I was very well respected, and had never caused a problem with the company, so I naively thought that I was protected. For my own sanity, I had to move on. I'm glad that you did. Being ostracized at work is not easy. You made the right choice, and you are not alone.
