Leading Practices in Global HR: Determining Your Own "Best" Path Forward
This article presents a
number of leading practices,
collected from numerous
sources and personal
experiences over many
years, which organizations
should consider to help them
improve their global HR
function. The goal of this
article is to provide a broad
list of leading practices that
the HR organization can
evaluate and choose from on
a case-by-case basis based
on their need and relevance.
In today's tumultuous business climate, organizations must be strategically superior and operationally
efficient in order to survive. Dee Hock, founder of Visa Corporation and author of Birth of the Chaordic
Age (1999), describes a "chaordic" ("chaos" + "order") organizational model - one that seeks to leverage
the best of innovation and collaboration along with the right amount of structure and order - which is
the organization most likely to be successful and thrive in today's face-paced, constantly changing
Building a chaordic HR organization requires deep understanding and careful
implementation of certain practices that foster autonomy and innovation for competitive
differentiation, while supporting standardization and efficiency of non-valued-added functions.
"HR Best practices" is an expression we hear regularly in the press, presentations, brochures, and white
papers by vendors, consultants, and analysts who want to "sell" the world their point of view.
But what is "best" in one person's opinion may not necessarily be the "best" for everyone based on each
organization's unique history, culture, industry, vision, leadership, strategy, and business goals. Hence, it
is more appropriate to talk about "leading practices" - that is, widely recognized business practices that,
when implemented correctly, bring enhanced business value to the organization.
HR Business Model
The first place to begin in evaluating leading practices is to have a global HR business model in order to
organize and evaluate the options. This model consists of five key business
components - Strategy, Organization, People, Process, and Technology - and two overarching
management processes - Project Management and Change Management.
Following this Global HR Business Model, the remainder of this article list 25 leading global HR practices
that HR professionals should consider and evaluate in order to determine the relevance and applicability
for their organization.(Complete article)
