The Need for HR

"You see we need a HR person to be here all the time" said the manager

"Why?" I asked

"Well, when people come late, or don't behave according to organizational norms, HR should point it out to them?"

"And why can't a leader/manager like you do that?"

"Well we have to get work done through them, and we can't spoil our relationship policing them, therefore we need HR to do that" said the manager.

This conversation happened in the recent past.

Those of you who share the feelings of this manager, please evolve. It's the manager's job to discipline and point out when people step out of line. Not the HR professionals'.
