I wish more companies took the HR function more seriously and didn't just view us as the hire, fire group and event organizers


Very related: if your company is looking for an HRBP that actually knows what HRBPs are supposed to do, hit me up 😅


I wish they saw the value in HR roles and paid better... Or maybe I'm just in the wrong HR role.


If only people realize organization hiring so many recruiters is just a way of saying everyone is dispensable even giving TA more work to do in building concrete pipeline and God forbid if resources is even enough at this point

100% and I'll add to this... Talent Acquisition ≠ Talent Management. External talent attraction is not the same as facilitating internal growth and progression. Also agree with the above, everyone wants to be a recruiter right now. Looks easy from the outside, doesn't it? 😂


All of this! I am one of those people, too. Sole corporate recruiter for a company of almost 1000, and had to fight to hire a junior recruiter 2 months ago.

I wish more companies understood HR in general


And then you see Hrbp being paid less and you are wondering since when did rank has more value that pay worth?

My company is one of those. Our BPs are overworked and under resourced having to do ER for hundreds of managers and a ton of other stuff. I'm in operations which in and of itself is a specialization in a way yet my title is generalist. What I do is no where near a real generalist role is supposed to be, my work is much more specialized and focused. Which is fine, but the title not matching doesn't make any sense to me

I'm of a pretty strong opinion that HRBPs should not be doing Employee Relations. To me that's a routinized (or "operationalized") repeatable process that simply requires a particular skillset. I think Generalists (or, god forbid we act like they exist, ER specialists!) should own it. As a BP I find that doing investigations pulls me away from the commercial mandate I see to the role. My time and skill adds more value spent on performance enablement coaching and intervention design, org design, and executive coaching. Employee Relations is Risk Management, not commercial strategy and tactics.


Can we do more of this, I have studied HR and didn't know this. Theres so many different titles in HR field

Changed my company but it didn't update!

My OOO email message starting Monday: I will be out of the office from 9/21/15 until 9/28/15. If this is an emergency, tough luck.


As a consultant, what kinda tasks do people with an Apple Watch ?

When a client wants to bitch about the rest of the organization for 45 minutes after a Steering Committee meeting


Traveling for this project makes me not want to travel home for the holidays. I don't even want to think about all the incompetent vacationers swarming the airport terminals.


It's Sunday 4pm. Only 12 more hours before I have to wake up and catch my plane to hell!


When you find yourself contemplating how to get yourself fired and land a sweet severance package. You know you've been at it too long.


Does the way you dress really matter as an analyst? I understand looking clean and well rested, but it’s not like the client is looking at you as the company spokesmodel! Thoughts?


Thursday night strip clubs with analysts...


When your firm releases results from the past Q and partners are saying "We had a blockbuster quarter. We did fantastic". And… well it ends there.


As a beginning consultant, all this free food and hotel stays do help my bank account. I buy significantly less grocery than my other non-consultant friends and I get to sleep on a king size bed.


Eurgh. Marriott buying Starwood is like Dunkin' Donuts buying Starbucks
