5 Reasons to Fall in Love with HR This Year

Feb 14, 2022 6:00:00 AM

There are a lot of conversations taking place in the country right now that deal with the great resignation, working from home, and the future of business in this new digital age. But as we have these conversations, it is so important that we remember the people who are working behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly. Of course, I’m talking about HR professionals, those often unsung heroes who make our work lives better. 

Here are five reasons for you to fall in love with HR again this year. 

1. They are on the front lines of the great resignation

Human resource teams help our businesses grow by providing valuable insight into current and future staffing needs. In today’s workforce climate, HR is vital to strengthening recruitment and hiring efforts, and HR professionals are on the front lines of the great resignation that continues to plague the U.S. 

2. They negotiate for us and guide us through complex benefit offerings

HR professionals help businesses stay competitive by ensuring wages and benefits remain competitive. In addition, they negotiate benefits packages for employees and keep great employees around by assisting companies in selecting benefits that appeal to greater work-life balance and security. Not only do they negotiate all of this for us, but they also ensure everyone in the organization understands and signs up for their benefits each year. 

3. They help keep us all safe in the workplace

By keeping up with the new department of labor laws and regulations, HR helps keep our businesses safe from compliance and liability issues. Their knowledge and research ensure we are safe and working in an equitable workplace. 

4. They are an essential part of career and business growth 

They help our employees and leadership grow with training and support. Often, HR teams will have general training programs that provide opportunities for developing various skills needed for employees and leadership to perform their jobs better. For example, training may include safety courses, leadership development, performance management training, diversity and fairness practices, and other courses that ensure everyone is set up for success and has a great workplace experience. 

5. They keep employees engaged and productive

HR helps maintain a working atmosphere that will allow employees to be satisfied and productive in their work. They keep their fingers on the pulse of the workplace, always aware of present difficulties or those that may be on the horizon. Because they have such extensive knowledge of the inner workings of their organization, they can often tackle any issues that arise before they can affect morale and productivity. 

HR is at the Heart of Every Successful Business

Without HR, our businesses would fall apart and our careers would be impossible to navigate. It ensures organizations run smoothly and that both the company and its people are protected. Because of all of these reasons and more, HR really is something to fall back in love with this year.
