HR – A rousing manifesto

For a thousand years, HR has been eyeing a seat at the business table. We live in times when a business has to be ready for standing orders. But this is lost on HR professionals.

Leave aside the seat at the table. It has no power to inspire.

Is there anything that can? Can we find something that can make our vision soar and see how we in HR can make a dent in the universe?

I propose the words that follow. They move. They inspire. If you feel it in your bones, if you tremble with unbearable excitement at what it means to live these words, you are onto something special.

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
