HR has a new role, and it’s critical to your company’s success!
HR… what’s it really for? People teams are often siloed and aren’t traditionally considered a ‘value-driver’ within the business.
But in today’s people-centric workplaces, your HR team is crucial to designing work environments that help your employees thrive.
When companies make HR a core function, employees are more inspired and productive, leading to sustainable growth and happier workplaces.
Here are three reasons to transform your HR approach:
Reason #1: HR has a unique vantage point
“Your CFO can give you a good idea of what’s coming 18 months down the road. Your HR team can tell you if your company will be around in 10 years.” Forbes
Think of HR as your ‘secret insider’!
With their finger on the pulse of how employees feel about policies, structures, and processes, HR can bring a pivotal viewpoint to the boardroom.
Your people managers can determine which steps and initiatives will align with employees. At the end of the day, your goals only matter if your people buy into them.
Reason #2: HR is the architect of the employee experience
HR has the insight to design an energizing experience for team members.
That could mean having a sense of which candidate would work best with existing employees, or checking in to see if team members feel like they’re being supported.
They’re also the first point of contact at every touchpoint of the employee journey and constantly ensure that everyone feels connected to your company culture.
Through HR, employees feel like they’re being prioritized, are part of something bigger, and they’re inspired by the work they do!
Reason #3: HR is the bridge between employees and the C-Suite
There’s typically a wide gap between what leaders think is happening in their organization versus what their people actually feel. Think about how many companies have come under fire for their toxic work environments and poor leadership…
The role of HR is to connect the voices of employees with the direction of the company. Your people might want to raise issues and concerns with their managers, but may not feel ‘safe’ enough to do so.
Count on HR to facilitate the communication needed – creating more transparent and trusting workplaces for leaders and employees.
