Human Resources

What are the current challenges for the HR function?

People are still at the heart of every organisation. Talent management remains very important for ensuring your people are developed, incentivised, motivated, and ultimately engaged.

However, as we face the biggest work change context we’ve ever seen, with technology advances, globalisation, the political climate and changes in the social demographics of the workplace all impacting organisations, it’s more important than ever for HR to understand exactly what’s happening on the ground. In today’s environment, managing people-related change is a core focus, and many companies’ HR function is driven by the recognition of its significant impact on sustained competitive advantage.

HR needs to be a function that isn’t just about understanding and managing personalities. There needs to be a focus on working with data to make decisions about what you need to do, change or promote to get the best from your people. The proliferation of business transformation means the function is now less about traditional HR expertise and more about communicating and supporting people in an organisation that is going through change.

The core role of a modern HR function is to partner with their organisation, making sure it is fit for purpose, ensuring their people strategy totally aligns to their business strategy.

What type of HR talent do you need?

Before you can decide what kind of HR person you need, you need to consider your growth plans and the challenges associated with them. Organisations need to be thinking ahead to their future business needs.

Individuals need to understand the business strategy, how you are going to grow, and the market you are in. For these reasons, they need to be experienced at managing people and have the ability to partner with the business to drive the culture that is set by the leadership team.
