YOU MIGHT BE A DELORIS IF...

You favor compliance and regulations over progress and innovation.

WE HAVE ALL MET A DELORIS.

Could be male or female. Could be old or young. Deloris is a pain. Deloris follows outdated HR thinking and doesn’t know the meaning of innovation. She doesn’t try anything new. She’s stuck yesterday’s focus on compliance, rules, regulations, process and oversight.

Deloris is easy to spot, but if you’re having some trouble, let’s have a little fun with this, you might be a Deloris if…

You think a paycheck is all the thanks an employee really needs.
You aspire to have the word “compliance” somewhere in your title.
Your favorite phrase is “File that under ‘N’ for “No!”
You think that requiring management approval is the key to maintaining order.
You have a bumper sticker on your car that reads, “Perks are for punks.”
You spend your Saturdays reviewing audit information – AND YOU ENJOY IT!
You think HR stands for “Humans are Resources”.
You believe that company culture should be strictly enforced.
You’re suspicious of any employee who would volunteer for an assignment.
You think the best way to drive loyalty is to smile whenever you’re delivering bad news.
Your go-to answer any time you’re backed into a corner is, “Let’s send out another survey.”
You think a high turnover rate is always linked to one of two things – the economy or the economy.
