HR continues to be a function that is unable to find a place for itself or add strategic value. It’s really a matter of focus.
The most frequently asked question by HR professionals:
When will HR get a seat at the table?
The most frequently asked questions by CEOs in all fast growing economies:
1. How do we manage the talent gap?
2. How do we continue to be viable if the cost of talent is shooting up so rapidly?
Do you still wonder why HR doesn’t have a seat at the table?
The day HR starts to ask these questions. And the day that HR comes up with answers to these questions. They’ll have that seat.
Grow up. Shape up.
HR Professionals need to realize that they are part of a business enterprise and they must FIRST understand business. Only then will they understand the strategic needs of that business and be able to respond appropriately.
I think the only way to solve this problem with HR, is to insist that an HR professional should have spent at least 5 years in an ops role before moving to HR. Problem solved.
I would like to see some change HeRe!
