There’s no denying it, HR professionals are starting to think outside of the box when it comes to job titles. HR often gets a bad rap as “the Principal’s office” or “the fun police,” but creative titles are helping to rebrand HR professionals as the heroes they are.
HR understands the importance of a job title better than anyone. In fact, Namely’s HR Careers Report revealed that an increasing number of HR professionals are adopting unconventional titles, such as “Office Happiness Champion” or “Head of Optimistic People.” These titles are arguably more authentic descriptors of the HR function, and they help break common stereotypes around the department.
This burgeoning trend draws on the human side of HR, highlighting their heroic tasks—be it running payroll, planning a holiday celebration, or curating a top-notch benefits plan at the best price. Not all heroes wear capes, but most do have a special name. Why should HR be any different?
