Dear All,

I have a bout 3 years of experience in HR, In which I have came across Jr-Middle and now in HR policy making. Where as, today in the morning drive to office I felt it is the same as boring Recruitment, Induction, PMS, ER, T&D the same forms and templates...................:confused:

do you think like the same as is it boring?

We do a lot of transactional job which is actually boring. While things become interesting when we see our idea is taken up or any practice is implemented. Regards Sarit :icon6:

Interesting to me. I am very very junior to all of you. Just started my career in HR.

Hi Shiva,

if you keep doing whatever you have mastered - it will be boring..

But try something innovative... it will be fun.

What I am doing now is - "performace metrics" - really different from the usual ones.

That is- I will take each job, break into 10 different tasks, set the standards for that, create checklists, deviations initimation checklist and dead line :-)

Hmmm they call this KRA/KPI - but mine is even more detailed and gets indepth to the task.

ALways HR is a topic in which you can create so many innovative concepts. Keep thinking.

And if you still feel bugged - just take occassional breaks and go on long drives, with loud music., and a great book to read - else just chose photography.

And get back to work with a whole lot of energy.

Dear Soju,

I do agree with you it was same alike when we started the career and it is like the same with every body who come across a 3+ years in the same path.

Where as my question is any new things are practices can we do here in HR?

Posted 12th June 2009 From India, Bangalore
HR is a daily learning process - no body will bore if he/she chooses the way to learn the good things everyday instead of repeated tasks. Regards Pankaj Chandan

I too agree... Initial 3 years of job is interesting... then it becomes bit bore... same old things to do.... only if we have some new challenging activity to do... its a bit fun... or else... zzzzzzzzzzzz

Dear Chandan,

While you particulate into a stream for some years it will be obvious to you. You can't avoid doing repeating tasks.

Where as this post is indented, to innovate or learn the new things than the general practices of HR.

dear sharmila,

your select retirement field as change field.


dear shiva,

main cause of boring for you is "little learning is dangerous thing" bcoz you have little experience.

Posted 12th June 2009 From India, New Delhi
I do agree Dada,

Just 3+ years, really not a big journey. But where as, quantity doesn't matter "Quality it matters". I have come across all the responsibilities, perhaps worked as SPC in an 150 employee organization.

But, can you please suggest me anything than..............Recruitment, Induction program, PMS, ER, Documentation, CM, ISO standards., CMM standards

Friends, Try Innovative HR .Make your own Practices to improve.It is continous learning. For you reference See attachement on HR TOMORROW

I can understand and do agree with you upto certain extent. We can’t avoid doing repeating tasks but we can fill our job with lot many new things daily and do amendment with the old tasks to make the work challenging.


1) We do have some pairs of dresses – if we wore same pair of dress every day it will become boring that’s why we do experiments with our dresses to make good dress sense every day to look good and different.
2) We have our own flats/house/rooms to live – it will bore us soon if we don’t change interior and colours of walls (whitewash) after a span of time.

Like this there are lot many examples to define.


1) We must accept a challenge to remove sickness from our work.
2) We have to make useful experiment with our past work to make future work smoother.
3) As HR is a daily learning process – so – we have to learn many new things and expand our area through discussion and learning new thinks from other HR professionals (*for that CiteHr is too good*)
4) Workout with future challenges to prepare ourselves for any change.

Dear Colleague:

One is apt to develop such a feeling, if one's sphere of activity is
within narrow confines. HR offers unlimited scope for learning and development of the individual. It depends upon the individual as well as the organization one is working for. You are a far junior official in the ocean of HR. Even in recuruitment, there are lightning changes taking place. How much your expereince in recruitment in the present assignment will help you in other organizations is a moot point. Every youngster should strive for having for more and more learning opportunities. When you feel the work is going to be routine for some more years, this is the right time for you to shift your career to other orgnizations including manufacturing organizations where you will have exposure to strict compliances of labaour laws; administration of contract labour; negotiation with hard core labour leaders; development of wage and career policies for personnel, laying down norms for productivity, conducting great fuctions for employees, running house maazines and newsletters and launching many other innovative programs for employee engagement.

If one has good exposure in the whole gamut of HR/Admn for about ten years backed up by professional qualifications. he will command a minimum price tag of a few lakhs a month with so many offers knocking at his doors.

An exciting career beckons every HR professional-who is well prepared! Now is not the time for any youngster to feel bored
even at the beginning of their career.

Dear Sundar,

Thanks for the reply. Here what experience speaks. Very much aware that 3 years is nothing in the count of experience.

Once again thanks alot for a wonderful article on this.

Posted 12th June 2009 From India, Bangalore
Hmmm..... You need to be passionate about the things you do.....once u spend a few years in a particular field it does seem boring...this not only applies to HR but other fields as well... Ask urself have you done everything there is to do or know everything there is to know about Human resources?????????...think about it

Posted 12th June 2009 From India, Mumbai
dear shiva, during only three years you across through ..........job profiles...In standrad company it is not possible as per quality standard. I have strongly doubt about your quality of work. dada
Posted 12th June 2009 From India, New Delhi
Hi Shiva,

It is true that experience speaks a lot, How about having a small meet for all citehrians and asking experts like Sundarajan to enlighten us with various aspects of HR so that we do not feel this stream as boring and use the knowledge thus gained in our organisations.

Thanks & best regards,

Posted 12th June 2009 From India, Mumbai

Friends nice idea na

Dear Shiva,

Have you ever heard, Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder.Similarly life is what your percieve.For someone, spending life like you do may be a dream job, but not for you.This is your perception.
As you say,3 years is not a small period as you think. Every moment of your life is vaulable experience.But still one should have continous learning in life and have dynamic changes...Think wisely, may be you want to implement your strenghts in other domains of HR. HR is such vast field from Recruitment to Employee Engagement.Value your present life and explore better avenue.

Whatever you do, at the end of the day you should feel pride that you are worth of your job and feel happy.
My Best Wishes...

Hai Shiva,

It is really very bad to hear form a young HR aspirant that he got bored with HR activities. I think you’re in the starting stage of your career just 3 yrs of experience and you should never say that you got bored with your work, just imagine those with who are wrkng in this field from years. They never complain they get bored with their works.

Compared to other professional we HR professional are blessed with god’s grace that we deal with human (complex machine). So we should never say that we get bored. And HR is not limited to only Recruitment, Induction and policies’ framing it’s a vast field you have to try some innovative ideas to perform your job. You can create your own idea to implement in your work and those working with.

As compared to HR professional working abroad HR professional in India are blessed with many things. As Mr. Sundararajan said they have lots of thing to do in a manufacturing sector.

And I do think that the time have come to change your job, as a person may get bored if he have no new challenges to perform in his present work environment.

Hi Shiv,

Iam Pavan; I do come along with 3+ exp in Hr; I feel when any role is bounded by activities which are routine & recurring in nature and their is no further to do in it; then yes every professional will feel their job is boring; this is just not confined to HR; It is for all professionals who still have the Zeal to do things innovation & who feel why a task has to be done in a particular manner??Why cant be done any other pattern which is more professional & systematic; more creative; Hence, what i feel is when we join at the basic level we learn & hence we have zeal; after 3 yrs this Zeal especially in HR field will get low as the work is same for the most; but few professional like us still like to do things differently & then a Question arises "Is my Job Boring? it always the same"; but believe me when you start something new for the old in a better manner, you will definitely feel the challenge
Thanks & Regards,

May be,

It happens for only few in the industry. From the day one I have undergone in policy making as a junior Executive, say it is all almighty, and blesses. Where as CMMI have done in my first company and other undergoing now.

It is really difficult to produce "QUALITY OF WORK" as there is now end for the level of satisfaction.

Dear Shiv,

you are bored of HR, and you see I am bored of this life, this material life, and I want to go to the other world, and experience spiritual bliss. Away from this hatred, and worldly desires. I want to fly like a free bird lightweight and free, no issues, no tension of job, money, etc..

Can anyone help me :(:(:(:(
Posted 12th June 2009 From India, Pune
Dear All,

How can anyone be bored of HR???????

I mean this is one job that people crave about. It is one of the most authoritative job one could ever have.

We are the people driving organization, driving motivation, driving performance and we are the people who drive growth.

If we only get bored of the job that we are doing how can we expect the employee's morale to be high and their motivation to be on zenith?????

It is not right thing to think about boredom at a place where it has got no place to withstand.

We should understand that we are on the wheels of the car name Company and we are the people who thrive to make way for organization's growth and not giving bumpy rides.

Just imagine if the driver feels bored while driving, is there any one in the car who can take hold of the wheels as efficiently as a driver. The obvious answer NO.

So guys inspite of the fact that you might be bored we should indulge ourself in some activities.

We can carry out a stress analysis with the help of friends and/or colleagues who have degree in psychology.

This will help us to understand the mind set of employees and also will help us learn different subject.

I personally keep myself busy reading books and watching movies that are inspirational and which can actually help me to learn new things.

Guys once again please dont feel bored of HR at least not on this site.

The real reason of boredom is not the job, it is how you do it??
