The Darkside of HR

I received a thank you note from an HR colleague for contributing towards a gift or some other thing I must have done in one of my less sinister moments.

I normally toss such things directly to the recycle bin, but considering the fact that I actually like this person (yet another weakness) I read it.

This quote caught my attention:

"I really look forward to the times when I work with you and the darkside of HR. "

I have some thoughts on why HRIS might be considered the darkside (other than my sarcastic tendencies giving it a bad name), but that's another post.

Busy, busy, busy

Aren't we all? :)

However, several projects have landed on my lap and being that time of year, our painfully low headcount in HRIS is even lower.

I'll try to post a bit more frequently, but it may be a week or four.

Coming soon---my favorite topic: turnover calcs and the people who misunderstand and misuse them.
