Coercion in HR

When does toeing the line cross the line?
||Last Updated: 05/13/2008

HR professionals are often expected to toe the company line and implement policies regardless of whether they agree with them. Sometimes, HR is expected to cut corners, bend the rules or turn a blind eye to unethical behaviour.

The fourth

Pulse Survey

from the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) of Ontario and

Canadian HR Reporter

wants to uncover how many HR professionals have you ever felt coerced into doing something they were not comfortable with at work.

To complete the survey, go to

and enter survey code: Coerced.

The survey is open until Wednesday, May 14 at 5 p.m. and all survey responses are anonymous.


Pulse Surveys

are designed to take the pulse of HR practitioners across the country on issues concerning the HR community. Previous surveys have looked at the

future of HR

and the

Certified Human Resources Professionals

(CHRP) designation.

The results will be published in the June 16 issue of

Canadian HR Reporter

and in a subsequent issue of HRPA 360°.
