The other day my little girl came downstairs wearing her new t-shirt. She said, “Mommy, am I vintage?” I looked at her shirt. It said “1985 Vintage Tommy” (yes, I realize that was 25 years ago, can you believe it). I then set about explaining what vintage meant and that in my opinion, she was not. I wondered, what makes something vintage and is it a good thing?
Words like classic or antique are also used to describe the fine qualities of having age. But whether you use the term vintage, classic, or antique, it is never a good thing when it comes to HR. Legislation is always changing, systems are always being improved and communication tools are developed and enhanced.
Is your company’s HR department “vintage”, or progressive? What is the largest problem facing your HR department that makes it seem outdated? Are you going to be able to help change that?
