It’s tempting to allow your HR department to operate autonomously from the rest of your company, especially if you have a particularly skilled HR staff. But they may need a helping hand and neglect to bother you about it. Sometimes the best employees are the ones who resist asking for assistance because they have a good work ethic and insist on working problems out for themselves.
Now, however, there are so many more tools available to help HR departments that you would be remiss not to check them out and empower your staff with the ones most suitable for their needs. The gifting season is over, but you can still hand over some much appreciated assistance.
Some corporate policies are so restrictive that department heads are afraid to avail themselves of the latest tools and trends. Sometimes the most powerful tool you can offer your HR department is permission.
