Welcome to the greatest show on earth….the HR Circus!

April 6, 2009

We all need a ringleader in this circus of a world we call HR. 

After starting a personal blog  recently and reading many blogs over the last few years, I have decided to take the plunge into writing one specifically for my industry- human resources.  First, I wondered what I can contribute that is not out there and, after some thought, I think I can contribute a different spin than some of the other prominent HR blogs.  I personally learn something new every day from those awesome blogs (you can find my favorite blog links to the right).  What I hope to bring to the table is how one struggles with the daily HR issues in a corporate environment, where change comes more slowly, and how to successfully incorporate innovative and creative approaches to HR.

I chose HR Ringleader because according to Wickipedia, “the ringleader is often the most important and most-visible performer in the modern circus (aka HR in this case). He/she usually introduces the various acts and guides the audience through entertainment experience. Most modern-day ringleaders become an integral part of the performance, singing and dancing along with the other entertainers.  The ringleader is responsible for maintaining the smooth flow of the show — or at least the appearance of it.”

To me, my role as a HR professional is more than just trying to have a seat at the table.  It’s my attempt to guide employees through the work experience.  I want to become an integral part of their performance and sometimes, I want to be able to “sing and dance” right along with them.  I also want to do what I can to make the HR experience a smooth one for leaders and employees.

So, ladies and gentlemen, please join me over the coming months as I explore the greatest show on earth- the experience of human resources!

More soon….
