The (R)evolution and Purpose of HR
Creating architecture: the structure for organisations and people to work together effectively. And creating cultures: the interaction between humans and the organisations they work in.
That’s the real purpose of HR work.
Our wish for this field (that hopefully soon won’t be called HR anymore) is to make it lighter, faster, more constructive. Continuously improving, with meaning and purpose.
All those check-the-box exercises of what your textbook says HR should be doing? Konmari your way through them and let it go(ooo).
Figure out what pieces of your work are foundational for your organisation and constructive for its people - what purpose do these pieces serve? Why do they matter? Why are they important? Really thinking this through will take you to the opposite of checking-the-box work.
Allow yourself to actually deliver on the promise of providing a good structure for the people in your organisation to thrive in. Create effective spaces for people to work and collaborate together.
There is real value in that.
If it sounds overly simplified, that’s because of all the dead weight that is dropped. Giving you lots more room to breathe.
And we promise: shedding that ballast can be a lot of fun.
