Has HR Finally Found A New Name?

Has HR Finally Found A New Name?

Is anyone really happy with the name Human Resources? Or do we just stick with it because working in HR we struggle to call ourselves anything else while keeping a straight face? I mean, becoming a “Chief Happiness Officer” makes me think of a clown, rather than someone dedicated to helping people do their best at work.

But still, human resources sits uncomfortably, and even Google’s famed “People Operations” seems rather cold, and the wording a little clumsy. The idea of a resources being something you need to put into a process to extract value from, like other things you’d put on a factory production line, is at odds with the modern knowledge economy and the functions many HR teams perform today.

Winning Back The Workday: Tough On Meetings, Tough On The Causes Of Meetings

Winning Back The Workday: Tough On Meetings, Tough On The Causes Of Meetings

To reach our most productive and creative selves, we need solid three or four hour stretches of uninterrupted work. Yet for most us, this sounds like an unimaginable luxury. Our days are broken into short stints, in which we never get up to full speed.

Meet Is Murder, a marvelously titled The New York Times article, recently affirmed for the millionth time that the problem is meetings. “They’re boring. They’re useless. Everyone hates them. So why can’t we stop having meetings?” the subtitle asks.  

But 3000 words later and we’re left with no answer at all. The Times piece falls to find a conclusion because it merely looks at various ideas for cutting down on meetings, not the reasons why people feel compelled to call so many meetings in the first place.

An excess of meetings is often the symptom of more serious problems. So to paraphrase Tony Blair: it’s time to be tough on meetings, tough on the causes of meetings.

Peakon's Five Favourite Business Books

Peakon's Five Favourite Business Books

“I can’t stand business books,” was the standard response when I brought up this topic, with our team. In general, I completely agree. Reducing someone else’s business success to a checklist, negates all the subjective factors you face. Learning from anecdotes told by CEOs sets you up for future lamentations of “but, it worked so well at…”.  

The best of the genre, however, is different. We quickly realised that our favourites equipped us with mental frameworks that improved our own day-to-day decision making. They were also works that challenged us, with arguments that we first had to be convinced of, before later internalising. Here are those five books.
