There exists a misnomer amongst the employees that most of the human resource managers are heavy-hearted. In reality, as there exist two faces in a coin, so does the job of the HR manager. Looking at the roles played by an HR manager, one would realize the fact that HR is the face of the company.
A good human resources employee develops and balances the dynamics of the company. They recruit, train, approve invoices, maintain payroll, benefits, and databases, mediate conflicts, and ensure background checks. Furthermore, they act as an essential component of upward communication in the organization.
Most of the employees try to maintain a friendly relationship with the HRs of their respective organization, the main reason behind this is that the HR serves as a significant link which connects the management and the employees. Moreover, it is the role of HR to maintain a productive atmosphere and an excellent work-life balance. Sometimes, these needs are met with a short humorous piece of oral literature called a joke.

Here let’s take a look at a story that has a masterpiece climax.
On a fine spring morning, a highly successful Human Resources Manager was walking to her work, on her way, she was tragically hit by a bus and died. Her soul traveled to heaven, where she met St Peter himself. St Peter welcomed her to heaven with open arms. “We are privileged to have a successful HR like you in heaven, but I feel that you should be given a chance to choose between Heaven and Hell. Hence, what we’re going to do is let you spend a day in Hell and a day in Heaven, and then you can make your choice.”
“In all honesty, I prefer to stay in Heaven”, said the woman.
“Sorry, we do have rules…”
And with that St Peter put the executive in an elevator and it went sliding down to hell. The doors opened, and she found herself stepping out onto the green grasses of a beautiful golf course. There was a country club situated a foot away from her and standing in front of her were all her friends – fellow executives that she had worked with and they were besuited in evening gowns and cheering up for her. They ran towards her and gave her a warming hug, and they talked about old times. They all played an excellent round of golf, and when the night was young, they went to the country club where she enjoyed an excellent steak and dinner. She met the Devil, who was a handsome guy. She was enjoying her wonderful time that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody waved goodbye as she got on the elevator.
The elevator went up to heaven, and she found St Peter waiting for her. “Now the time has come for your day in heaven,” he said. So she spent the next 24 hours lounging around on clouds and singing. She had a great time and before she knew it the day got over and St Peter came and got her. “So, now, you have completed your challenge. Now it’s your turn choose your eternity.” The woman paused for a second and then replied, “Well, I never thought I’d say this, I mean, Heaven has been great, but comparatively I had a better day in Hell.”
So, St Peter showed her the way to the elevator, and again she went down back to Hell. When the doors of the elevator opened, to her dismay, she found herself standing in a desolate wasteland covered with garbage. Added to that she got to notice that her friends were dressed up in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks. The Devil welcomed her back.
“I cannot make head or tail of this situation,” said the woman, “Yesterday when I was here, and there was a golf course and well-structured country club, and we danced and had a great time. Now, there is nothing but a wasteland full of garbage, and all my friends look miserable.” The Devil smiled at her and told…
“Yesterday was your
recruitment day, but today you’re an Employee.”
To conclude, HRs are of immense importance to an organization’s success as they tend to find the right balance between work etiquette and the workplace atmosphere. In order, to be a successful HR one has to adapt to diversities, prefer inclusion over exclusion, and help employees figure out their purpose of work.
