How the World Views HR

The world views HR in different interesting and sometimes pathetic ways.  Maybe your boss thinks of you as the party planner, flip flop police, or the bathroom monitor.  I like to think that over the last few years our industry has changed for the better.  We’ve eased up, let our hair down, and learned to have a little fun at the office.  And then I find infographics like the one below.

The world views HR in an often surprising way.  I’ve often said that HR has a PR problem and I still believe we do.  How can we change the perception of HR?  And is it worth our time?
