"WriteSizing" for us, was a smart take on "rightsizing" (an HR term). This well-thought-of nomenclature was supposed to showcase our wit in capturing the essence of our blog - The marriage of HR (Human Resources), creative writing and fun (a polygamy, if you may). But we were soon shot down by the blank faces our dear non-HR friends donned on hearing this title. Post which we found ourselves walking them through the original "rightsizing" in HR and then to our title, and then to how our title is "mind-blowing", by when we managed to suck the life out of the title. So we decided that this description in writing would save us from the multiple oral explanations henceforth. But wait, what is 'rightsizing' then? If you already know, hey fellow HR-ian, we hope you have a good read with us! But if you don't, then we welcome you and thank you for giving us this beautiful opportunity to take you through the myriad facets of this wholesome function - Human Resources.
Quick Trivia as a welcome gift to our HR-newbies :
Does ‘downsizing’ scare you? Of course, it does. Downsizing is the process of terminating employees not because they are at fault, but due to the resulting inefficiencies. Thus, to avoid this emotional trauma, people managers today believe in rightsizing. ‘Having’ the right number is better than ‘making’ it right later. The reason rightsizing has become so important is companies must ensure top-notch efficiency besides being profitable. So instead of downsizing, HR decision-makers resort to rightsizing, a proactive approach, to achieve optimality. Mirroring this philosophy, we bring you the right content with our blog - ‘Writesizing’!
