Is HR up to the task of helping organizations improve business performance? The Corporate Leadership Council has taken a hard look at HR's priorities and which skill-sets best build the function's effectiveness for important roles.
As the world's organizations strive to improve business performance, human resource departments are increasingly being asked to assume roles with greater complexity, financial impact and strategic relevance.
But is HR up to the task?
The Corporate Leadership Council has written a report, Defining Critical Skills of Human Resources Staff, that takes a hard look at how well HR departments are aligning their priorities against business needs and which HR staff skills best build the function's effectiveness in its most important roles.
The report also examines the most effective methods for building those critical skills and how organizations should evaluate and execute shifts in their approach to increasing effectiveness and staff capabilities.
The CLC has allowed Human Resource Executive® to provide access to excerpts from the report that include an overview of its findings and an extensive summary of its conclusions.
