Where Is The Accountability?

Sometimes I feel we've all gotten a bit soft in today's world. It's so easy to turn away, claim we need a bit more documentation, or to simply ignore the situation until it is so polluted that the decision you should have made months ago is now pathetically obvious (and nearly risk-free.)

But at what cost?

It's Okay To Get Involved
What happens in our organizations when we as HR leaders identify issues but do nothing about them? Here's a short list:
- Decreased productivity
- Poor quality work product or service
- A spot on the "Worst Places to Work" list

How About You
Where are you on this issue HR? Do feel more comfortable waiting for people to come to you with full documentation of every little issue that has ever occurred before you act?

Or, do you go get the information you need so you can actually contribute and support all of those great employees that are watching and waiting for someone to take action?

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.

  2. A bit soft? I think we have become stupid soft. We no longer share what we really think, in a polite way of course. The notion of "to each its own", or "whatever" mindset are killing us from within as a society. Oh, I'm sorry, we have become civilized therefore completely disengaged with the audience in order to maintain the status quo.
