Why We Love Talking About HR

Keith Hammonds’ story Why We Hate HR continues to catalyze some qualitty conversation.

Knowledge@Wharton joins the fray with a piece entitled Is Your HR Friend or Foe?. Suggesting that it depends on who’s asking the question — as I think we’ve seen in discussion here — the article goes on to highlight some interesting challenges and opportunities.

Among them: “Trends in HR usually require about a decade to take hold.” While that’s a slow pick-up rate, perhaps we’re closer to HR being a strategic business partner than we think! That gives me hope.
