The vast majority of poor performance doesn’t happen in isolation. It happens because of the way organisations work, organise, recruit, promote and train. If HR is accountable for organisational performance, then it is also responsible for individual performance. So if there is poor performance in the organisation, then maybe it’s yours.

HR overlaps with so many other parts of the organisation. That doesn’t, however, mean that it should report to any of the other areas. Being too focussed on one element of our remit means that we can neglect the others. The key is to be different but work collaboratively with subject matter experts.

We’re all where we are because of our natural charm and ability, right? If there is any discrimination going on, it isn’t benefiting people like us…..it’s others. But hang on, wait a minute. What if I got where I am, because of who I am? And what if you did too?

No HR model has ever adequately dealt with the issues of power and control within the HR function. The Ulrich model, although well intentioned, went a long way to exaggerating these issues rather than dealing with them. In my view, until we deal with these things, we’re never going to move forward.
