The hirers, the firers, the team with the wagging finger, the ones to call to deal with that tricky employee or troublesome issue.
That’s the traditional view of an HR department but the reality is a whole world away – and it if isn’t, you might not be getting the best from your HR function.
It can be difficult to quantify the true value of HR but, equally, it is easy to underestimate its importance.
A successful HR team will challenge the status quo, and, with the right approach and strategies in place, can influence culture and shape change. A company’s achievements and financial success can often be directly attributed to the skills, motivation and achievements of its people.
An effective HR strategy will not only ensure operational success (at its most basic, making sure the right people are in the right positions) but, by aligning an HR strategy with organisational objectives, also enhance service, efficiency, and reputation.
Effective HR can push vision and values to the top of the agenda and help drive this thinking across the business.
The right HR strategy – and the right HR leadership – will successfully engage teams and empower employees to strive for success. An engaged team will know what is expected; an engaged team will have individual and company goals in sight.
In our experience, companies which prioritise HR and which see it as more than fire fighting and administration, will see the results business-wide. If this blog has struck a chord, please get in touch.
