Abolishing HR

A company decides to abolish its human resources department and shift the responsibilities to its managers.

I can think of some organizations where that could work and others where it would be a disaster. An alternative, of course, is a middle ground of moving certain responsibilities while keeping others with a HR department that functions more as a group of in-house consultants.

Too often, HR departments operate more like in-house cops and are regarded as adversaries by the other departments.
