Most HR Pros Don’t Know Why They’re in HR, Says TLNT’s New Columnist Kayla Moncayo

Meet Kayla Moncayo, TLNT’s new employee relations columnist. (OK, not that new. She’s already penned two columns.) Kayla writes “ER Trips,” each installment of which is a new trip into the world of employee relations to provide insights to help you avoid tripping over thorny issues at work.

Kayla herself is an ER professional and self-proclaimed HR fire-breather. She and I recently spoke about:

  • Top employee-relations issues that companies struggle with today
  • How organizations typically screw up ER matters
  • Ways to transform ER from a compliance-driven reactive function to a more proactive one with broader business impact
  • The reason many HR professionals suffer job dissatisfaction
