During the course of a panel interview for my current job, I was asked a question about dress code by one of the interviewers. The question sounded something like this, “Many departments throughout the organization enforce different dress codes. Do you feel that dress code should be uniform throughout the organization and how would you address that issue?”
Jason – I love this !! I use the "it depends" answer daily and also at every HR Roundtable because there is no one, clear answer or approach to HR situations.
Amazing – we are states apart, yet of one mind. Scary !! Can't wait until we get to present together at #HRevolution !!!
Excellent post Jason!
As a former HR practitioner and current HR consultant, you hit the nail on the head. Saying "it depends" means knowing there is no one fix-it for all problems. It also means that when opportunities like this come up, it's time to listen carefully, collect all the information you can, weigh the benefits / consequences of a decision, and then offer up the solution.
