Random Notes

(June 17, 2003) - The latest Workforce Magazine includes a good section called 25 Trends That Will Change the Way You Do Business.  The kicker?

Conventional wisdom says that human resources finally has achieved its sought-after seat at the table. But the ability of human resources to add value at a strategic level "is currently more promise than reality." That's the sobering finding of Creating a Strategic Human Resources Organization (Stanford Business Books, 2003), a long-term study of human resources by Edward E. Lawler III and Susan Albers Mohrman.

The authors found that today's people managers still are most comfortable with traditional human resources activities. "If they want to be effective business partners, they need to change their skill set," Lawler and Mohrman say. Almost 30 percent of the companies in the study promote human resources executives who come from the business side, not human resources.

"In essence, some companies may have decided that the HR strategic-partner role is too important to leave to someone with an HR background." The study's conclusion: Human resources must reinvent itself. "The old approaches and models simply are not good enough."
