Part: 1 Your Own Career Is Your Best HR Asset > The Sacred Trust That Is HR

Chapter 2. The Sacred Trust That Is HR

HR Is a Calling

In the last chapter I talked about the sacred responsibility that goes along with being an HR professional. Now I'm going to take this idea one step further: As an HR leader, you can cultivate a deep trust—a confidence—that sets you apart from everyone else in the company. Maybe even from everyone else in your community. When it comes to the vital importance of keeping your own counsel, there is more at stake in your position than in that of any minister, priest, rabbi, imam, lawyer, or CPA in town. You hold more in your hands than even your CEO. Why? Because the information that you hold in confidence has multidimensional implications for the company, its future prospects, its growth potential, and its position in the marketplace, and, last but certainly not least, for the effect that all this has on the personal life of every one of your employees.
