The need for tactical human resources tasks will probably never go away, but this doesn’t mean that this is where the growth and value of HR ends.
In today’s competitive business environment, people management at all levels of an organization needs to be more strategic and evidence-based for organizational development. Now is the time for HR to rise above its role as the keeper of short-term, compliance-related duties and begin to intentionally contribute to the overall strategic success of their companies.
Human resources is often perceived as a function that addresses the tactical, reactive, compliance-related, and short-term responsibilities of an organization like professional talent management, recruiting, payroll, etc. As a group, it is not taken seriously and is sometimes relegated to a party-planning role or an employee-facing entity charged with routine activities such as benefits enrollment, required training, and hiring/orientation.
Of course, these responsibilities are necessary and important in any company. However, potential exists for human resources to add strategic value – and the time to do so is now.
In today’s dynamic business environment, the need to lead and guide critical business strategic initiatives require innovative people-related strategies. These strategies must support and integrate with other departmental and the overarching business strategies.
Join the webinar to know.
The path from tactical to strategic is not an easy one. We as HR practitioners need to get out of our own way, put together a clear vision for where and how we can best contribute, and deliver business value in ways that we have not done so before. Join us for this course to understand how to transition from tactical to strategic HR, including the steps to get you there.
