Lonely in HR?
Maybe this is the problem with anyone who manages people, but I often feel like an island in a sea of co-workers. In HR, we hold so many "secrets" -- confidential information about our co-workers -- that I am reluctant to really make friends at work.I truly honor the confidentiality of others (and we all must!), but I feel that a big part of socializing in the workplace seems to be talking about things that I cannot. This isolates me from nearly everyone. Does anyone else feel this way? What do you do about it? Is it possible to make friends at work when you are in HR?
