Do you work in HR or something? I have no doubt that people in charge of HR think they're doing a good job of it. I acknowledge that hiring is critically important.
99% is an extrapolation of my experience. My experience is based on working at four separate very large top tier financial companies where human capital is
the business. HR's energies appeared to be mostly devoted to onboarding. Their usefulness in hiring was close to nil. We typically go AROUND them.
The 99% also reflects commentary from everyone I've ever heard talk about HR.
Can it be done well? Yes. Do some companies do it well? Surely. Do I think most companies hire so-so people in HR that phone it in and rely on digitzied search terms to go through resumes? Yep.
