New HR Challenge: Great Compliments

The Happy Employee and JT from the Careerealism Blog have created a fun new HR Challenge for everyone!

We all have annoying co-workers and it’s easy to complain about them. But can you give them an authentic compliment? Can you look past the annoyances and see their strengths?

Well, are you up for it?

    Okay, I shall try and hope my brains don’t get incinerated.

    Context: Manager who is convinced her employees are getting better benefits than she is (they aren’t, but should), and who believes everyone in HR is out to screw her (we aren’t, but we would like her to go away). These attitudes are in large part responsible for the highest employee turnover rate in our company.

    Compliment: You know B, you are very diligent about the application of our policies and procedures as they apply to you and your employees. Your diligence has clarified for your employees exactly how policies are applied to their employment here and what benefits they are eligible for, both things that are important to the positive employment experience we want each of our employees to have.

    HappyEmployee- Thanks!

    JackBuilt- Awesome answer! Would you mind heading over to http://careerealism.wordpress.com/ and duplicating your answer? It’s not my challenge and I think it would be great for them to see it as well.
