Well, let me put a disclaimer right away, it’s not a take on human resources departments around the world,
For those who don’t believe me, wouldn’t take that chance ever, for my dear wife is herself an HR, dangerous territory to tread upon.
Paraphrasing what it is:
Few centuries back, there was this horse who had this sense,
Come on, it cannot be as lame as this!
So, the master wanted to take the horse to the field,
Though the horse which loved to graze, wasn’t up for the same, even after being pulled from all sides.
A maid in the household who happened to be watching this, came up to the horse, put her maternal finger in its mouth and slowly took it to the place where the master wanted it to be,
As always, moral of the story: if you want someone to do something you got to make that someone want to do that something!
Coming back to the human resource departments around the world, they say the biggest challenge is to keep the employees engaged and bring out the best in them.
Why, what and how, guess you are smart enough to figure out how to arouse that eager want and motivation to accomplish that very something!
