HR needs to reinvent itself
“Never before have we needed HR to not be HR more than we do now”
We fully agree with this statement by Jacob Morgan, author of the Employee Experience Advantage.
We believe HR can be a catalyst for powerful change but it needs to reinvent itself. We need to challenge the way we think about HR’s role in organisations and rethink tired and outdated approaches. Some key areas HR can reinvent itself:
HR needs to move from a fixation on process, policy and procedure to a relentless focus on people and developing deep, meaningful relationships
HR needs to move from a preoccupation with transactional work to a genuine transformational approach
HR needs to shift from a focus on compliance and internal policing of organisational rules to the development of cultures that genuinely care for people
HR needs to embrace technology without losing the human touch.
Without doubt, HR needs to put the humanity back into Human Resources. HR needs to evolve quickly to be fit for purpose in the modern, disrupted world. If we do this, we’ll become the catalyst for transforming cultures to create great workplaces where employees do their best work.
