#RedBranchWeekly: Show ’em Your Good Side

Best Practices, Employees, Employer, Hiring, HR, Recruiting

There’s two sides to every story…

Good Side…one person’s perspective vs. another person’s perspective. Both may be right to an extent, or both may be entirely wrong. Either way, there’s always two sides, and they say three sides (when the truth is told!) So, how do you know which is the right side; the good side? It’s not that easy, and it can be completely impossible depending on the situation. However, here at Red Branch Media, we like to think that we’re pretty level headed, and we know when somebody or something is getting a bad rap that doesn’t deserve it at all, and lately that something is HR.

Yes, Human Resources is getting slammed (see below), and it’s been like this from the beginning. Which is why we’re here to highlight the good side of HR. So check out our client highlights below to see how HR is truly paving the way for a better and brighter future workforce. Don’t forget to share the #RedBranchWeekly with your friends, so you can help show HR’s good side, too!

In many cases, HR is painted as indifferent, apathetic, frustrated, petty and ineffective. Ugh.

Leaders don’t generally set out to decrease motivation and squash engagement; it’s just something that happens without strategic leadership. The acknowledgement that we all know is so crucial for a healthy workforce tends to get lost in the day-to-day of business. Don’t stress, it happens to the best of leaders, but the first step is to recognize the problem. Read more…
