We talk a lot about HR and our impact within the workplace. Some would say we talk a little too much and don’t do enough.
So today we are challenging that with a simple prompt. If you want great results, you need to be committed. So says an article from Entrepreneur. Commitment is more than a desire. It is about actions.
‘Too often, people give half-hearted effort, leading to mediocre results.’
Are you happy with mediocre? Would a mediocre HR function be attractive to you? A mediocre HR job that delivers only average outputs?
It does matter what level you work at, or what your specific role is. You can set the tone of expecting and driving for more than average. The call as a leader is greater because not only can you set expectations, and commit to them, but making that visible to employees from the start of each day to the end can act as a role model for others to do the same. As an HR leader, you can walk the talk by making sure that you are not just full of good words but that you deliver on the expectations you set. You also have an opportunity to find out what drives and motivates your employees too so that they can give of their best. If you don’t know, ask them!
‘If you invest in developing and helping committed individuals become great at their craft, you’ll surely see a positive yield from that investment.’
