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.
Topics covered by this report into the role of HR in preparing for future challenges include:
• The pressures that the HR function is currently under
• Reframing HR’s purpose
• Refocusing HR’s portfolio
• Re-skilling HR people
• Redefining the role of HR in people management
• Re-shaping the relationships that HR has within the organisation
• Refreshing the HR processes
