HR Duo Love HR

It’s February, and love is in the air - though it's not just reserved for romantic gestures, because in Human Resources (HR) there's a deep-seated passion that drives people professionals to make a difference every day. So, as Valentine's Day approaches, we thought we’d embark on our very own heartfelt journey, to rediscover the love of working in HR.

We reached out to our vast network to uncover the stories of business leaders and HR professionals, delving into what ignites their passion and what fuels their dedication to the industry.

HR Insights From the Heart 

“One of the reasons I love HR is because it changes almost daily. The job market and corporate landscape aren’t what they were even just six months ago. As people professionals, we need to be flexible and adaptable to all of the current changes and trends.

Though I have to admit, my favourite thing about working HR is being the first person new-joiners get to know, you have the chance to make a lasting impression on their time with your business, as well as expanding your own professional network.” - Danni Welsh, HR Generalist

"As cliche as it might sound, working in HR is more than just a job; it's a calling. We're ultimately the guardians of the employee experience within a business - where every day you have the opportunity to impact lives and shape the culture of an organisation.”-  Sunny Kang, HR Coordinator

“What’s it like to work in HR? There are moments when you feel like the unsung hero, tirelessly advocating for employees' rights, mediating conflicts, and safeguarding the integrity of your company. Yet, there are also moments when you find yourself cast in the role of the antagonist, delivering tough news, implementing policies that may not be popular, or enforcing compliance measures. It’s a rollercoaster, but getting to watch the decisions you make have a direct impact on the growth of a business makes it all worthwhile." - James Stark, HR Operations Specialist

The Course of True Love Never Did Run Smooth

Amidst the passion and dedication, HR leaders encounter formidable challenges that often threaten to overshadow their love for the profession. From delivering unwelcome news to mediating workplace disputes, HR professionals often find themselves in the unenviable position of being the bearer of bad news. Moreover, with legislation surrounding ever-evolving employment practices, they are presented with many regulations and compliance standards to uphold. 

According to our recent survey, a staggering 64% of HR professionals and business leaders in SMEs struggle to keep pace with their day-to-day HR duties. Additionally, 70% of businesses expressed their frustration with the effectiveness of their existing HR software solutions, finding them either overly complex to initially set up, or that they no longer align with the evolving needs of their diverse workforce and business requirements.

While technology isn’t a cure-all for every challenge faced by the industry, it does offer a tangible solution to alleviate pressure and refocus on the primary reason most HR professionals entered the line of work: to effect meaningful change.
