Ever wondered how the HR manager, to whom we are but a head count in a large company, decide who to recruit, promote, or even retrench?
Assuming everyone has the same performance and achieve their respective KPI, how do they know who is more ‘valuable’ to the company?
Or who has the ability to communicate their ideas across all levels?
Take Dave for example.
He’s been in the his company for 7 years.
He works hard like you, hits his KPI and then more.
But somehow, that elusive promotion just past Dave by.
Year after year.
Unfair? Unlucky? What about mis-understood?
You see, most people would believe the key to promotion is KPI, which is definitely important, so is taking initiative and a good relationship with their bosses.
This is true if your boss is the one making all the HR calls. The better your performance and relationship with your boss, the better the chances.
As for Dave, unfortunately, his colleagues are also performing as well as he is and they too have good relationships with the boss.
How is the boss going to justify the promotion to the HR manager? Definitely not by the number of pints they had.
On the other side of the coin, the dreaded retrenchment exercise.
When all are equally ambitious (who doesn’t when we smell a poor economy coming?), with your boss equally unsure of his/her future, how then does the HR decide?
Remember, everyone in the payroll is just a headcount.
All the HR has is your appraisal. As long as you don’t mess up, like most of your peers, you are on the same level as everyone else.
That One-Up credential?
What if there’s this one certification that gives the HR an immediate insight and confidence in your ability to communicate with anyone on any level?
Something that is quantifiable, one that the boss is ready to justify your promotion with.
