Life as an HR Business Partner is rarely predictable and never boring. Very often now, friends from all walks of life come up to me and ask me for stories from work. In the eyes of many, my work life is more eventful and entertaining that that of a rock-star!
I look forward to waking up in the morning and heading to work. I have little clue what my day will look like. It would be a lie to say that I enjoy all parts of my job, but it would also be untruthful to say that the work is not invigorating. There are of course mornings where I’d rather curse the world and stay in bed. Work does get hectic and the pressure to deliver is immense. There was a time when I reported to four bosses at once. It is difficult to keep one boss happy; imagine my plight!
This blog is the story of my journey through this profession. They are stories and opinions I’d like to share as I walk through this adventure. I know there are many HRBP’s out there who have experienced similar situations and probably handled them differently. I’d like to learn from them. There are many who will face similar challenges in the future. The hope is that when you need answers, you will return to this blog and in some way it can help you leave with an insight on how things went in the places I worked for.
