… and women will create morally righteous ways to abuse it.” [Janet Bloomfield]
Is anyone surprised that most compliance officers are women and that these women are the ones who create corporate cultures that actively undermine the strategic goals of the organization and help to ensure those businesses fail? HR officers of all stripes are overwhelmingly women, and their ‘qualifications’ amount to ‘soft degrees in liberal arts’ featuring a lot of cultural Marxism and not much in the way of critical thinking, strategy or math.
It was not always thus.
Deadweights that hector, punish, shame, control, enforce regulations that may or may not serve any strategic purpose…..it all sounds so familiar! I will be interested to see if the author calls out the real problem here: women.
“HR departments have in many companies been “captured” by the political forces outside the company that regulate labor, punish violations with fines and public shaming, and pressure companies into paying off diversity activists looking for support for their causes and sinecures for their political allies.
The increasing complexity of regulations and government enforcement have, as in academia and hospitals, increased the number of deadweight HR employees needed to handle administration.
Like the commissars and parallel political officers of the old USSR, HR functionaries are unconsciously acting not only for managements wanting managers to avoid legal and ethical trouble, but for governments reaching into the organization to achieve political goals and promote government control of private businesses.
Smart managements will neutralize these tendencies by paying close attention to attitudes and activities of HR managers and staff. While companies need to avoid trouble with governments, they need the best employees and competitive products and services to survive and thrive.”
My line has been for a very long time now that we are NOT talking ALL women here but the Harmans, Pelosis, Clintons, sundry HR battleaxes, Cressida Dicks, Fiorinas, Dunns, Mayers, Whitmans, Warrens – drunk on their modicum of new-found [last decade or so] power and wanting to fling it about to show who’s boss.
We’ve all seen the type in action, we’ve all seen Brazilian electricians die from it. we’ve seen Missouri basin homes flooded directly due to it. But there’s something more and this, I suspect, is designed to show these non-comp women up. Take pretty Marissa, take an already failing company, due to board and management [happened to be male], put one at the head of the other and watch it go down by degrees. Look at Whitman’s HP now. Same thing. Rebekah Brookes.
Four women in a row in charge of this Rotherham enquiry and have you see the most recent?!! Straight out of the Marxist playbook.
If senior boards or managers see a basket case and if they actually WANT to see women fail, then they’ll appoint this type to those roles. Eventually, there will be such an outcry that no one will appoint women any more to senior posts and that’s a classic case of the 48% ruining it for the 52%.
The reality is that there are some first class administrators who are men and also some who are women. The latter do not seem to get a look in, in key positions involving employees or the public. The incompetent seem to shut them out or else they’re not interested.
Perhaps the bosses higher than them prefer the type, as the type is compliant and incompetent. A surefire way of telling is if she starts a witchhunt. And that includes incompetent, pussified men too.
