Speaking Truth to Power: HR as the Employee’s Advocate

Speaking Truth to Power: HR as the Employee’s Advocate

Once upon a time, the Human Resources Department was known as Personnel. Now it has changed again and is being called things like Talent, Talent Resources, Human Capital and a dozen other things. The problem is that it is all the same and there is nothing much new. All these titles put the emphasis on talent, but unfortunately the function exists to protect management.
