What Do All the Knobs Do In HR?

When I saw What Do All the Controls in the Airplane Cockpit Do?

It made me think of HR.

We have lots and lots of knobs.

Twisting them one way does this.

And twisting them other way does twice as much of that.

And running HR?

It’s more complicated than flying an airplane.

Machines do what you tell them to do.

As the pilot wrote, “Every plane is different.”

“You fly and control in three dimensions.”

Flying an airplane and flying HR are alike in some ways.

It’s easy to take off.

But navigating to where you’re going

And knowing how to land

That takes finesse.

And knowing what all the knobs do.
