January 2020
The holiday season is over but January offers us all a fresh start.
What are you doing to kick off the new year? Maybe it's time to take a fresh look at your organization's HR practices.
Eileen's Lesson:
Do you have a doorbell? Most of us who own homes do. We have a battery-operated doorbell in our home.
When our children were born, we removed the batteries because the bell woke them up from naps. Years later, we got a dog and she was not fond of the doorbell, so we continued to leave the batteries out. Which was fine because the dog notified us of visitors long before the visitors had a chance to press the doorbell button. 
  
One day, I received a text from a friend “Are you home? I’m outside ringing and ringing your doorbell and no one is answering. I don’t even hear the dog barking at me.” What happened? Our children were grown and flown and our dog -she was just older and clearly didn’t care. 

Now, we could have easily put the battery back in the device(if we knew where they went). But our life had changed, we needed to think about what we wanted. We were empty nesters with a dog. Did we even want/need a doorbell? Should we get one of those Ring doorbells? Something else? And were there others things in our life that needed to change now that we no longer had a full house? Things change and the tools we use also change. 
 
Sound familiar? Many times organizations go through changes and need to evaluate if what they are using still works. Unfortunately, you won’t have a friend texting you from the front door. So why not hire the HR Team to evaluate your HR processes, policies and procedures instead?
