I love the relationship between analogies and HR. It makes the process of understanding HR concepts more interesting and relevant. However, many might feel a tinge of insouciance associated with them.
I belong to the former school of thought.
Consider this quote:
"Marriage is the chief cause for divorce"
The quote is funny and even though it might be seemingly impractical, it is the 'truth'. No one can refute the aptness of the quote.
Let's consider it from HR context now.
" Recruitment is the chief cause for attrition"
The effect is similar here too. It is funny and even though it might be seemingly impractical, it is the 'truth'.
Many might laugh it off. Well!!! let's laugh but also learn along the way.
Such a simple analogy can infuse a greater thought process and sincerity in the execution process of recruitment.
Happy New Year!!! Keep laughing!!!!!
