Three Reasons Why HR is Boring
Let’s be honest here… HR has something of a reputation for being a little bit boring. It’s a burden that we’ve carried for years, and it’s one that refuses to budge in a lot of circles.
But is there any substance behind it? Are we actually just a group of thundering bores who can bring nothing more to your business than bureaucracy and forms to fill in and pointless policies that never see the light of day?
We’re willing to look at the arguments, for sure. Here are three reasons why the naysayers might just be right…
1. We can keep you out of tribunals
Because the court room is really exciting, right?? It’s definitely where most business owners want to end up when they’re in the middle of balancing everyday concerns, and striving towards growth. Though of course, it’s really not the case. In fact, it’s your worst nightmare, and it can be very costly and very stressful. However, good HR practices ensure that you’re not accidentally breaking the law.
2. We can save you a load of money
Is making money more tempting than saving money? It could be argued that it is. If you’re particularly daring, then you might decide to just focus on bringing more in, whilst ignoring the fact that your spending is spiraling out of control and you’re wasting cash all over the place. But good entrepreneurs and business leaders know that it’s a mix of both… And that’s precisely ‘why’ they use HR professionals to make sure that their staffing budget is invested in all the right places.
3. We can make your workplace a peaceful and productive place
Some people thrive on drama and arguments and scandal. They might say that without these things, life is pretty dull. If that sounds like you, then HR might not be your cup of tea. Most managers though just want everyone to be able to get along and form positive working relationships, so they can enjoy their time at work and make a valuable contribution.
If you think these things are boring? Then HR is guilty as charged!!
But if you recognise that these things are in fact prerequisites for running a profitable and sustainable business? Then we should definitely talk. We can bring the right brand of ‘boring’ to your business, and steer you clear of the unnecessary headaches and dramas.
