Most of us that loved our profession but have not gotten an opportunity to practice it are always looking forward to that moment that the Lord, in His opportune time, will lead them to such jobs as they studied in college. Such has been the case with me for the last two years since I left college for God had affirmed me to do something different for His glory… But I looked forward to the moment I would get back to HR.

The opportunity did finally come, but nothing close to what I had envisioned. I had not seen myself close to anything like a HR manager, and therefore I had not imagined that I would be sorely the employees ‘listening and caring partner’, but still the company’s vision and mission bearer. I realized I was exactly at the center of the HR Paradox: to protect the company as I engage the employee to score and thrive, and if the employee forces the HR to choose, they lose.

So when I say I am a Human Capital Manager, my work is to support everyone in the organization (including the organization itself) deliver what they have been asked to; or simply put, to score. I help discover talent, hire, develop, and support people with the requisite skills that the company needs to succeed, as put across by Ali Kursun.

I enjoy my work, I enjoy building relations with employees, listening to them and at least showing care. I like it when I know I am approachable. I rejoice in my heart when staff leave that office with smiles on their faces, their issues solved, or when, at the end of a conversation, a staff thanks the management sincerely.

I enjoy simply being a people officer.
I enjoy giving or allowing opportunities of personal development to staff; I know that not only does it ensure personal advancement, it is also for the use of others when we put our thinking power to work.

I enjoy those discussions of met appraisal targets and ideas for personal or organizational advancement, of salary increment. I am happy when I know what is getting in to your file is good stuff, and I like celebrating your victories. I have learnt that my work may never be seen, because I take a back seat as those I am supporting thrive; but what a calling!

However, it hurts us equally to us when your appraisal results are below 60%, and worse still, below 50% percent. We hate it equally when I have to write that dismissal letter on grounds of incompetency or whatever else, and leaving our offices with tears is as hard. We are hurt when, having made a well-articulated policy with majority’s consent, one requests that it should not be followed in decision making. Simply, we do not enjoy those things we do to you that are not positive, but being in HR leaves us without a choice.

We are equally dismayed in the interview panel when you show up with an incomplete CV or one that has mistakes, or simply, one is incompetent. I am learning to simply engage someone on what we need, that first impression doesn’t wholesomely dismiss one after all, and to ensure my fellow panelists do not suffer from Interview Assessment Disorders.

In short, HR is a higher calling; to manage people. It is a calling to stand at the back, cheerlead, celebrate, encourage, rebuke, correct and lead, never taking the show. It is an invitation to pray with (especially in the office), cry with, laugh with, listen to… to serve. I could not have asked for a better life educating career!

So Grace Me Lord!

  1. Journals of a young HR Manager; that’s really a lot of reflections in a few weeks, it points to your zeal, passion, and commitment. I’ll always be your number one cheerleader.
    😍😘

  2. Great reflections there Agnes in such a short while. I celebrate you… you have such a key role in God’s mission in the world that was/and still is expressed in a promise to bless all the people of the earth. May you continually be that noble vessel that He will use to accomplish His purpose.

    As you cheerlead, celebrate, encourage, rebuke, correct and lead, point them to Christ.

    The way to live with significance is to devote yourself to a purpose greater than your life.

    Bado nangoja hiyo coffee 🙂
