What's your experience? Do your managers listen to HR? Please respond to this reader in comments.
"I have been receiving e-mails from your site for quite a few months now. I really enjoy the info I receive. I have been doing HR for the last 9 years. I have hit a point in my career where I am no longer happy. At this point in time I don't have the time nor the means to go back to school and start all over again. I kind of fell into HR. I consider myself a Generalist, although my title is HR Manager.
"I am not happy where I am, but because of the state of the economy and the fact that my pay and the flexibility are pretty good, I am sticking it out.
"I work in a food plant where everyone, from the GM (General Manager) to line supervisors, does whatever they want and don't heed any advice that comes from HR. It is very frustrating. About 80% of every day consists of damage control. What can I do to get the attention of the guys and get them to start complying?"
What would you advise this HR Manager so she enables herself to contribute and gains more skill in influencing managers and supervisors within her work environment?
