New experiental-based book exposes current dysfunctional state of HR
By: Maykit Marketing
Based on his experiences over the years, the book explains the origins of HR, its abuses, the way it has gained dysfunctional momentum - because it can! - and some of the pitfalls that can be avoided.
The book delves into Ed Moss's conviction that many of the loathsome, deeply mistrustful and often quite facile practices in HR today are very much responsible for the malaise that has struck modern recruitment and employment in the UK. It now firmly seems to take one step forwards and two, if not three steps back on almost a daily basis in terms of both quality and ethics.
He concedes that HR people are not necessarily bad people; thankfully, as should be the case, a healthy majority of them are nice, upstanding, fellow human beings. He says that it's just they are so dreadful at what they do. Or good at what they can't and don't do. And the actual 'profession' (maybe it's vying for the position of oldest in the world – they have a lot in common!) itself has become a total and expensive waste of space, time and trouble.
Ed speaks from bitter experience, in fact very bitter experience, having on one occasion having been at the receiving end of the most amateurish, dishonest and corrupt HR procedures he had ever encountered in his entire working life.
The book is available in both print and e-book format from http://book.maykit.me.uk/
