What’s HR Got to Do With It?

Filed under: Audio, Getting in the door, Job Search, Stuff I worry about, Stupid HR Tricks

Fast on the heels of last week’s column, Why HR should get out of the hiring business, I did Gil Gross’s talk radio show in San Francisco (KKSF Talk910 am). We discussed what’s broken about America’s employment system, why good workers can’t get hired, and what HR (human resources) departments have to do with it…

I think one thing that you say is under rated and lost in the debate…

You said why would someone work at a job for 5 years and leave for less money?

I couldn’t agree with this more. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been contacted for jobs, similar to my current role, where I would not make much more money than I am making now if I was lucky… I am always tempted to say “ARE YOU NUTS?” In other words, there is no compelling reason for me to change at the moment.

Sometimes, companies are their own worst enemy in this regard.
