Cimplicityrockss 4 – “HR” by an “HR”

Friends it is common for many professionals especially in HR departments to refer candidates for a job and it becomes more easy for the candidates when they actually get the same person who referred them in the selection panel as well

Just imagine yourself in the place of an Interviewer for a particular job and you land up in meeting your best friend in the place of candidate and to make your position even more complicated, your friend is not suitable for the role …what would you do ???


Am sure most of us would answer that we would select the candidate based on their performance only…but trust me though this sounds simple to us… in reality it is very likely that majority of us try to be more generous in our selection process when it comes to known people…it is a natural human tendency which I agree but keeping in mind the larger community of suitable & more qualified candidates your decision of selecting your friend becomes biased…..

Am surely not here to discuss good practices of human resource professionals but just want to tell you about this person who in HR profession set his own rule and I believe that his simple attitude of honesty can be a great lesson to many of us…

I know this person for quite a longggggggg time now….he is an HR professional (Human resource professional). He Voluntarily backs out from interviewing any candidate whom he refers for any job and not just the referred candidates but also when he happens to meet any known people in interviews then he honestly discloses it and gives the role of interviewing to third person to ensure at most quality and integrity in recruiting……Why would a company need stringent policies when all its employees inculcate such great policies in their own life………?

Sometimes we don’t realize the greatness in certain simple things we do isn’t it? Am sure even this person would not have realized that his simple attitude would make such a good impression and meaning to other professionals…if he is reading this, then I would say “I have recruited you in my Blog with great respect  🙂”.

 “HR” by an “HR”
(“Honesty Recommended” by an “ Human Resource” professional)

I learnt honesty from his simple attitude did you?

  1. Excellently written. It is hard. I had to “let go” an employee whom I knew well and with whom I had socialized on a regular basis, both he and his wife. It was not easy. In the end he said he understood (there were valid reasons) and was patting me on the back saying it was okay. As I said it was hard. But it’s also difficult to keep a distance when you work closely with employees who are almost peers. Finding the middle ground can be tough. I liked your post and the HR Professional who set his own “rule. Thanks.

    • Thanks a lot for sharing this…:-) Your comments will surely mean a lot for many of us who are travelling in the same boat….and especially the HR person about whom i have written will know that he has a great attitude…..thanks once again…
