HR Specialist?

#1
I am led to believe that the clerks in my unit have now changed from clerks to 'HR Specialists'. Now I do not really mind what people call themselves but I think this a bit misleading.

The Q in my place is a nice bloke but I was trying to converse with him this morning about employment law - he looked a bit confused. I got a similar response when I asked him his responsibilities as far as recruitment and training policies were concerned and of course conflict management. When I asked what level of CIPD he and his clerks had achieved, again I got a blank stare.

So what aspect of HR do these 'specialists' actually perform? I don't really stare at the Q or his clerk but both just seem to file, update the nominal role, make coffee and collect the post.

Bit like asking GPD Officers about crime I suppose. Swings and roundabouts Old Boy, swings and roundabouts.

So why the name change? Is the role going tochange as well and are you going to become HR or will you continue to do the shredding etc?

Well my dim witted little friend I don't make policy so can't answer that. So what trade are you then in your blinkered world?

Dim witted little friend? Not very nice that is it? No need to get so offensive, I was only asking a constructive question. Have you got issues with your apparent lack of a trade?

Lack of trade, as you are refusing to answer my question I can only assume that you don't have one. Your not a Walt are you?

What's the matter, airconditioning not working properly today? Have another filter coffee (I think the badge wants one too), and relax.

You weren't one of the little podgy Sgt clerks at BATUS back in 2000 were you? I say clerk accurately because that was what you used to be before you became HR Specialists (sic).

What about the reply to any pay question of "Ring JPAC" not very HR that is it, you may as well have a sign saying Foxtrot Oscar

Nope afraid not. I think I know what the problem is here. You were turned down for a shag by the ugly fat HR Administrator at your (alleged) place of work.
