This is one question that I often ponder about.
Do you guys think HR fraternity getting enough importance in the organisation??
Are you satisfied with your Job as an HR and think you are getting enough rewards and recognition for the job done or you consider it be a real thankless job??
Does HR has become mere a support function today or is it still a function that supports the organisation from falling??
Whats do you think????

If your HR department is still not abolished in your company, and HR staff members are still paid their monthly salaries / annual increments along with other dept. staff, then, I do not know why one should ask this question. Do you want people to be thanking you for doing your duty for which you are paid?

What do you mean by 'importance'? Do you want all your employees to look at you as if HR is the most powerful dept in your company?

You need to define 'importance'.

Why should you consider HR is a function that supports the company so that the company does not fall down?

HR is not a side support to be so visible that everyone notices it everyday and raises eyebrows.

HR is the foundation. It is inside the organization, penetrating every dept., supporting everyone, but not visible to those who can't see beyond what is obvious.

HR does not need 'thanks' from employees, but their performance and competence for organization's effectiveness.

HR does not need or expect importance. As the true representative of the employer, it only gives importance to other departments and the employees over there.

Jeev , Dont get angry on what Nishant said.
I will explain what he wants to say.
He wants to say that, like in programming or sales team, there is tangible result , so they get open appreciation and frequent increments , reward
Nishant, I got your message. people underestimate HR job, in fact ask , what is there in HR to work. There is no appreciation as such.
yes but in case of recruitment , we can get the appreciation if HR fulfill need of manpower on time. Recruitment is the only function among all HR activities can get incentives on achieving Targets.

I want to Intorduce my self first
I am Sowmya working as Sr. HR Executive in a reputed offshore company
I agree with the comment 'HR need not expect Thanks from employees'
but at the same time my experience tells me to make employees feel thanks for your job as HR, as other deparments have clear results we HR's don't have such KRA's to measure
Our main wok is to ensure employee satisfaction, so why can't we measure that in getting thanks from employees which shows our work inturn
They need not tell, atleast they can feel towards HR dept. with which we need not loose our energitic levels
let me know your feedback guys
