Hate is a very strong word that I rarely ever use. But in the context of this article, it seems quite appropriate. Before many of my friends in this function/profession take offence, let me clarify what I mean.



The traditional approach in organizations is to view the people function as the Human “Resources” department. So in a way, just as we say Financial Resources, Material Resources, etc., so it is with Human Resources! We may just brush that aside saying it is only semantics, but treating people as “resources” has a very cold touch to it. The words we use are powerful beyond measure – they cement attitudes, drive a certain kind of Theory-X thinking, and in all have a de-sensitizing effect when thinking about people working in an organization. When we clump the people working for us as “resources,” it fails to recognize and acknowledge that behind each of those “resources” is a living breathing individual with his or her own aspirations, challenges, hopes, and apprehensions.
