One bollock at a time – Part 5
The last bollock and perhaps the biggest one of all. (Incidentally, I realise that I have been potty mouthed this entire week and promise not to swear for the entirety of next week. If I slip up you can call me on it and I will donate £10 for each swear word to a charity of your choice. Ok?)
But seeing as that starts next week……..
Ever since I mistakenly fell into my first HR job, my ears have been filled with the moans and groans that “we are not taken seriously enough” that “we should have a seat on the board” that “the business is showing that it doesn’t value its people”.
No….it’s showing that it doesn’t value its HR department. And you know what? That is your fault. Suck it up and take some responsibility for fucks sake. If you play sport and you don’t get picked for the first team that is not the team’s fault, its not the coaches fault…..it’s yours. You dust yourself down, get back into training and you show that you have the mettle, you prove your value and you make sure that yours is the first name on the team sheet. That is how you get picked, not by sitting in the corner, tearing strips off tissues and complaining about how you are “misunderstood by society”.
If you aren’t being taken seriously in your business, if you aren’t being involved or included. Get out there, knock a few doors down, turn a few heads, make a difference. Create your legend and live it. THAT is how you get to the top.
HR deserves a seat on the board? HR deserves nothing. That is the final bollock.
