Old Myths about HR?
Changpyo Hong, HR Consultant, Australia, Member
Recently, I've known about the old myths of HR. In the six myths such as
1. People go into HR because they like people,
2. Anyone can do HR,
3. HR deals with the soft side of business and is therefore not accountable,
4. HR focuses on costs, which cannot be controlled,
5. HR's job is to be the policy police and the health-and-happiness patrol,
6. HR is full of fads, the sixth old myth that really confuses me. It that seems like HR is some temporary fashion in a organisation, but I do not know what it means exactly. Are there any relevant journal articles, theories, or cases to it? Please, anyone inform me...

Well, the 6 myths you've mentioned above actually are 8...
1. People go into HR because they like people.
2. Anyone can do HR.
3. HR deals with the soft side of a business and is therefore not accountable.
4. HR focuses on costs, which must be controlled.
5. HR's job is to be policy police and the health-and-happiness patrol.
6. HR is full of fads.
7. HR is staffed by nice people.
8. HR is HR's job.
For more info, they are explained in a book by D. Ulrich: "Human Resource Champions: The next agenda for adding value and delivering results".
