  3. Do not communicate important company information to your employees.
  4. Advertise work/life balance in your recruiting brochures and career website but don’t actually practice it in real life.
  5. Utilize the HR department as a paper processing and legal compliance function only.
  6. Do not hire any HR professionals who understand the strategic and financial benefits of creating a great workplace.
  7. Keep the HR director far, far away from the CEO.
  8. Have the HR department report to the CFO.
  9. Make commitments to employees and don’t keep them.
