Just a note to let you know we have a post up on Fistful of Talent today. One that I like a lot. Not only does it have a pretty cool image but it links William Golding's classic "Lord of the Flies" to HR practices.
If we didn't have HR making rules for us - would be happier or more miserable. Before you answer - check out the post on FOT.
Rules Are Important
As with incentive programs, rules are critical to ensure the results you want are the results you get. Too few - and you chaos. Too many - you get paralysis. HR - like good program design - finds a balance between those two ends to create a space where people can exercise creativity and personal control.
Rules are good. Just ask Piggy...or Simon.
