SHOW NOTES: Our HR HEROES HANGOUT™ series is dedicated to those who serve our societies each day, toiling in the bowels of the human capital infrastructure issues that fuel all organizations (hiring, retention, engagement, training, etc.); our HR HEROES! These are the unsung heroes that ensure that organizations achieve and sustain maximum human capital competitive advantage! In this episode our topic is, “Make your managers and executives HR fans and supporters!!”
HR is a glamorous and exciting field (it really is) where every single aspect of an organization is addressed. It deals with money (compensation, promotions, benefits, etc.), power (promotions, etc.) and respect (the concept of being valued). Our HR HEROES understand that they are not going to simply be a peripheral “administrative” entity but are instead the very heart of the organization. HR toils to ensure that people and resources are distributed and circulated throughout the entire organization. The HR HEROES are proactive and strive for their managers and executives to be fans (not simply reluctant participants).
A fan (or even better a “super-fan”) is eager to hear from HR, they look forward to their input, they are excited to be part of their initiatives. They know that their lives are better (easier, less stressful, more enjoyable, etc.) with their HR HEROES leading them, supporting them and looking out for them each day. We explore why our HR HEROES should strive to make fans of their managers and supervisors and the basic framework for how to do so (proactive, enthusiastic, assessment and pruning of interaction from the perspective of the recipient executive or manager). They are always asking, how does this make their lives better?
