A blogger who has set out to help bridge the gap between employees and HR says HR departments aren’t helping themselves

    Unfortunately, for employees at many firms, the only visibility HR has occurs during terminations and policy introduction/ enforcement.

    It is incumbent on HR professionals to be visible at other times and be seen as being helpful rather than being a barrier. Part of this entails being proactive and also following through on commitments on a timely basis.

    Otherwise, we deserve the title of Evil HR.

    Oh well now: ... we are on the front page of employee recognition, we audit the workplace for safety, we have succession and training on our plates, we work with the company to execute strategies and ensure staff are considered, when an employee is unwell we steer them to Employee Assistance. Might we have coffee in the cafeteria, be a participant and attendee to staff events. We say HI; we encourage, and make small talk, HR should not be a “ghost”. Then when we leave might we say "see you tomorow"
