HR and the Three Little Pigs

Once upon a time when pigs spoke rhyme
And monkeys chewed tobacco,
And hens took snuff to make them tough,
And ducks went quack, quack, quack, O!


This is an HR blog. You’re not supposed to be here.

You’re in HR. You’re afraid of the big bad blog. You won’t let social media in, not by the hair of your chinny-chin-chin. You’re afraid if you do, employees will huff and puff and blow your department in.

Well, maybe not you. You’re here. But others. It’s always the others.

Which house has HR built? One of straw? One of sticks? Or one of bricks?

The big bad wolf is at the door. Social media isn’t going away any more than telephones are going away.

It’s a choice: Build strong HR. Or huddle in a house of straw.

Which do you think will work?
