What to do with Human Capital Management?
If you’ve worked with Entergy for any amount of time, you are probably familiar with the term “Human Capital Management”. A phrase used in an earnings report to explain the elimination of jobs to improve the bottom line. Probably not the phrase you would use to describe the twilight years of hard work in your career with Entergy! We all understand the importance of the bottom line, but when it comes to you and your retirement, HCM are not the 3 letters you want to hear. As with many staff reduction plans, it makes it difficult on the ones that are still employed too! Even though there are fewer workers, the shareholders expect the same amount of work and profit to be generated. That leads your boss to be stressed, and his boss to be stressed, and that can lead to you working more nights, overtime, and just a general feeling of being stretched too far! It may even include the elimination of company tools that you depend on like a company cell phone or company car. In the end, all this “Capital Management” can leave the “humans” wondering, “How much longer do I want to do this?” or “Are they trying to push me out?”
