Don’t blow an opportunity

Q: I’m an HR manager with expertise in skills training. My company just invested $10 million in an integrated personnel software product using client-server technology, and I’m supposed to oversee it. That’s of no interest to me. What’s the best way to shuffle this duty onto others?

A: You want to avoid taking responsibility for applying technology to your job? That’s career suicide. Even if you prefer softer training functions, don’t turn away from technical issues. It’s the future of HR. Seek ways to extract more value from the software, apply it in new ways and educate colleagues on its benefits. Make the company’s $10 million pay off and your star will shine brighter than ever.
