In the 1960s and 1970s, HR was viewed as a back-office personnel function. In the 1980s and 1990s, it became focused on service to managers and employees. In the last 10 years, it has turned into a function focused on optimizing all areas of talent. Today, HR professionals must operate as skilled consultants embedded in the business.
The highest-performing HR teams use a series of unique strategies, which Deloitte encourages all organizations to consider in 2015:
2015 will bring a fast-growing economy, forcing HR teams to step up their game and provide even more value to CEOs and top-level business leaders. Resolve to take this time to refocus and re-engineer HR itself, and you’ll be happy you did.
Bonus Prediction: Think Bold
Finally, 2015 is the time to be bold, innovative and forward-thinking. Technological changes and other societal developments are rapidly transforming the workplace. Yesterday’s approaches to recruiting, performance management, training and even compensation don’t necessarily make sense today. We need to re-engineer the workplace and rethink the way we attract, engage and manage people.
I urge HR teams in 2015 to try something new and benchmark their organization against others. Visit other companies, keep up on research, and go to industry conferences. That will give you the confidence and insight to try new things and deliver bold solutions that drive your business forward.
