Everybody Hates You: Welcome to Working in Human Resources

What would you do if everybody hated you?

Well, everybody does hate you if you work in human resources.

* Employees hate you for being an administrative obstacle. What? They can’t sleep late and take mental health days? Why you gotta be like that? All bossy & stuff?

* Supervisors hate you because they can’t just hire and fire people based on instinct—or racism. Why you gotta be like that? All rulesy & stuff?

* Leaders hate you because you make them follow the law and spend money on safety, training and compliance issues. Why you gotta be like that? All legal & stuff?

* Other HR people hate you for thinking differently and daring to do new stuff. Why you gotta be like that? All brave and into data & stuff?

* And consultants hate you because you have a budget, share of voice and authority over systems and processes that are quite lucrative. Why you gotta be like that? All powerful & stuff?
