How Much Do Job Titles Really Matter?

Evil HR Lady

BY SUZANNE LUCAS SEPTEMBER 18, 2018. You can call me anything, just don’t call me late for dinner.”. This old dad joke demonstrates a laid-back attitude towards life, one which I applaud. After all, very few people say my name correctly. (It’s It’s Suzanne, not Susan, thank you!). But, what about job titles? Can we call service employees anything?

A reader writes: I have a small tight-knit team of eight people. The people that I’ve hired in the last two years socialize together quite a bit, which is great. The downside is they don’t invite me or the other managers; the junior members will hang out together and not invite the managers. The disappointing part of this is that this team has historically been very tight and (we hoped) didn’t feel hierarchical. As we hire more people, I would prefer that the environment feel inclusive.
