There is a solution when your HR systems stress you out

Serenity and HR systems too often present something of an oxymoron in HR or other ‘people’ functions. If things do feel that way, then this article is for you.

For many who have not grown up through a technology-based career, working with people technology projects starts out fraught with impossibilities, impenetrability and stress. Much of that sense of stress comes from a feeling of disempowerment – we’re at the mercy of both the tech itself and the professionals operating dark arts around it.

Here I use a secular version of the well-known Serenity Prayer, explained and translated into a technology project context, to convince you that with acceptance, courage and wisdom, serenity and your HR systems project are compatible colleagues at your desk.
