Repurposing HR: From a Cost Center to a Business Accelerator

By Carol Anderson
HR managers have been trained to think of themselves as cost centers, challenged at every budget cycle to cut, pare, and shrink expenses. Their staff brandish benchmarks and statistics to say how engagement affects business success, how the ratio of HR staff to employees is low, and how our turnover is too high. But with all these data, executives still roll their eyes and ask, But what impact do you have on our bottom line?" By breaking down organizational silos and using a process to generate and foster collective thinking, HR can shift the paradigm from developing programs, policies, and processes to improving the performance and productivity of the workforce. "Repurposing HR" presents a RoadMap for a new way to look at human resources in terms of the multiple roles that HR plays on the business scene. It will walk through each "StopOver" on the journey, including the * purpose, objectives, knowledge, and skills required * work products * tools and resources that are useful to the practitioner. This is a compelling process for using the skills, competencies, and attributes of the HR team in a systematic and holistic way."

Carol Anderson provides an insightful and thought provoking road map to guide HR and other business leaders in the practice of full cycle management of people to advance business practice.
