When you think about it, HR managers are pretty much just like Santa.
You have long lists (absent employees, job codes, open positions, letters to send, grievances to review … the list of lists goes on and on).
And, you have to check them twice. (Does that absence need recertification? Was that initial notice sent? Is your new hire under the right pay code?)
And, whether you want to or not, you know who’s naughty and nice (thanks to employee complaints, performance reviews, and recognition programs).
