Skip to comments.The Company Human Resource Department Will Become the Far Left's Fifth Column and Destroy the American Workplace

I worked in Human Resources for 15 years. You may think this is the group that processes payroll and plans the company picnic. However, when I entered the profession, it was becoming a differentiating factor. The performance management model at General Electric had become a strategic advantage. The focus of my graduate program was measuring and maximizing human capital.
Saying human capital is a dirty word now. However, at that time, it was viewed as the ability to measure the knowledge, skill, productivity, skill, and potential of individuals in the workforce. Then the goal was to translate that information into plans for hiring, training, promotion, performance management, compensation, and development to meet the current and future needs of the organization.
I was lucky enough to study under professors who were pioneers in trying to build models that could measure these items with the same rigor as finance and marketing. Throughout my career, I took data-driven approaches to all of these functions. I made decisions and recommendations based on models, assessment outcomes, and measurement systems. Where these were lacking, I built them.
At times someone in my human resources department planned the company holiday party. At least when those were allowed. I did frontline union relations and employee relations when my job required it and sometimes had to write policies and procedures. But these were not the core elements of my role in human resources.
In 2015, I was forced to leave the profession due to a personal injury. At that time, even a desk job was out of the question. As I transitioned into other roles, I started noting strange things were happening in my former profession.

Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT. Her answer was met with a round of applause at the session. Young Smith went on to add that there can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and theyre going to be diverse too because theyre going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.
Many liberal states REQUIRE these diversity positions in corporations. Then they also require enviromental compliance and labor compliance. Also $15/hr minimum wage to crush the small businesses.
Hahaha. Has the author been in cryogenic sleep? What next, a prediction that the public education system will become a leftist breeding ground in the near future?
My thoughts exactly. We like to kid each other where I work and actually think a lot of the PC stuff is pretty stupid. But a fun retort is, when someone tells a joke that has even a HINT of sexism, etc. I like to say,
“Watch out. I’ve got HR on speed dial!”
HR has been a hot mess for 25 years.
I’ve always been told that HR is not there to help or protect the employee, it’s there to protect the organization.
You should see the yearly training crap we have had to go through over the years! My Lord, I shudder to think whats ahead of us now.
Thinkin’ 20 years already.
“Is” or “has been for a while”. The Left has figured out how to use the market to spread it’s poison as effectively as it used government. It’s not limited to just entertainment, and it’s not just HR departments. Just emphasizing the public/private divide will not even slow them down.
Molding "Corporate Culture" is part of Americana. IBM comes to mind. What is different now is that a person's out of office thoughts can be reviewed on social media. The HR department promoting a culture is not new, it has been weaponized.
This started years ago. No news here.
Will? It’s already done.
My father in law was a B-24 and B-17 pilot in WWII, and he served as a command pilot, operations officer, training officer, and safety officer at bomb group and wing level. After the war, he used his GI Bill to get a degree in Electrical Engineering and went to work for the Power Company. He ended up as the Vice President for Personnel based on his expertise in training and safety.
When he retired 45 years ago, his replacement was a Human Resources expert, not an engineer. Every other company followed the same trend and it became the way that women were brought into the executive suites. All HR Departments are now hot beds of sedition working against the best interests of the company, the economy, and the employees. Interestingly, where you find women engineers, you do not see these destructive traits.
HR now controls all the hiring and firing at work. Guess who theyre reaching out to hire??
Wrong tense. Should be “Has Become” and “Is Destroying”.
