The Lung Official: Head of Human Resources
The head of human resources plays a vital role at any company. The workers need a safe haven and someone they feel is solely on their side. In a way, the workers and the company are in a battle against each other over time and money. The worker wants more money and less work while the company wants to pay less for more work. The human resources department is the one person whose whole job is to look out for the employee, making sure they are not being taken advantage of.
The Lung Official like to follow orders… And that’s a simple difference between the Heart and the Lung, who is also known as “The Minister or Chancellor.” The Owner (Heart) is an individual who has no one above them. They also play by their own rules, and that’s why they started the company in the first place. The Head of Human Resources is given a set of rules by the company and the country to follow. The Owner can work 120 hours a week if it wants but the Head of Human Resources has to follow the rules set down for fair employee standards. The Owner doesn’t need to go to school to learn how to start a business, but the Head of Human Resources needs a degree to prove they know how to watch out for employees. The Owner doesn’t need to follow the rules while the Head of Human Resources needs to not only follow them but make sure they are being enforced.
The Lung loves inspiration… Workers at a company need to feel safe in order to be creative. Imagine working 80 hours a week, getting paid minutely, and then being asked to get creative for the company. Not happening. Only when a person feels safe can they get inspired. People stay at companies for a long time when the support system is great. Good HR departments make for happy employees.
Most people first get sick in the Lungs… That’s why it’s considered “the fragile organ.” The Lung is the organ most open to the world. We breathe in air all the time, so the climate around us is very important. Live in a place with bad air quality and you’re bound to get sick. Work in a company that has a poor environment and you’re bound to get sick of working there.
The Head of Human Resources and the HR department overall is not a place that is typically stressed in companies. Many companies prefer to look at the bottom line and feel like employees are interchangeable. Don’t let this happen to your body. Breathe deeply daily and allow the Lung to take care of the rest of the employees by feeding them with oxygen, energy, and inspiration.
