Human resources or HR: Love it or hate it, it’s the business function that deals with all of the messy “people stuff.” HR people and HR as a function have tremendous potential for making businesses work better and helping people thrive. But there’s this thing, “HR theater,” that’s everywhere. And that’s not good. We discuss what HR theater is, why it exists, and what to do about it.
