Assumptions about HR

Think No Comments

There are a couple of assumptions that underpin a lot of thinking about the future role of HR (which is a topic we have been covering in scenario planning, simulation and action planning).

One (largely from within HR) is that it is all about becoming better strategic business partners.  The other, mostly from outside, is that it is about getting basic transactional services offshored and online to increase efficiencies in supporting individual members of staff and line managers.  So those who own or comment on companies should be interested in this recent FT piece.

Both these views can be seen as causes AND responses to the ‘I hate hr’ movement.
