Configuring HR for Tomorrow’s Challenges
While summarising an array of surveys indicating that HR still has a reputational problem, this report sets out an agenda to re-position HR as a high achieving function dedicated to organisation effectiveness. It indicates how HR should tackle its own talent challenge to shift HR skill levels and orientation, how it should organise its resources, the way it should work with ‘the line' to manage people, and the priority areas for action.
