After long deliberation and dragging of my heels, I have finally started a blog. Why? Well, first because it will allow me to reflect on the work that I am passionate about. Second, to comment on current issues and keep up to date while entertaining the rest of you… my readers. An individual is likely to have greater job motivation if they enjoy what they do… this blog is to reflect just that. I am enthusiastic about my profession, the difference HR can make in organizations and the new structure of HR that is being embraced by more firms today. There has been some debate about the HR Role as a Business and Strategic Partner, however if one looks at the responsibilities that are entrusted to HR professionals it is clearly evident that David Ulrich was right all along.
