You know, sometimes when you are innocently engaged in in-flight activities — such as making small talk and apologizing for accidentally hitting the passenger next to you with your laptop halfway through a 4.5 hour flight — somebody says something or does something that really gets you thinking.
Fortunately for me (probably unfortunately for those around me), it was my own [unspoken] words and action that got me thinking.
A recent article in TLNT listed the following five attributes of a great HR department:
- People get paid on time
- Civil and human rights are protected
- Accountability is enforced.
- There’s something in it for everyone. HR departments remind management that employees are not robots and need more than food, water and a paycheck.
- Fairness has a seat at the table.
Having pondered that list for some time I want to tweak it.
