I’ve recently started referring to the pace of the workload and projects my team is expected to survive…er…perform at as the speed of our work. I’m still unsure if I’m being arrogant in thinking that we are expected to perform at a higher level than most; or, if we are in fact operating most days at a different level. Quite honestly I’m inclined to believe it’s the latter of the two.
Now is the perfect time to discuss how HR can change the culture of the organization to help bring balance to a chaotic world. But I’m not going down that path. Work is hard, and there seems to be a heck of a lot of it to do these days.
