Companies say No to Having an HR Department – A Wall Street Journal article described how some companies are eliminating their HR function. Well here is a snippet on why they intent to ditch HR function. ’Companies seeking flat management structures and more accountability for employees are frequently taking aim at human resources. Executives say the traditional HR department—which claims dominion over everything from hiring and firing to maintaining workplace diversity—stifles innovation and bogs down businesses with inefficient policies and processes. At the same time, a booming HR software industry has made it easier than ever to automate or outsource personnel-related functions such as payroll and benefits administration.’
