In businesses today, every facet of the company has to be moving in the same direction in order for the company to be successful. Traditionally, Human Resources was not included in the direction of a company. They did payroll, benefits, scheduled interviews and helped with terminations. If that is what your HR department does today, you need to keep reading, and then call us.
What your HR department should be doing is being your partner. Whether your HR department is internal, or outsourced to someone like us, it has to be your partner. According to Tim Sackett in tlnt.com, there are five things that make a great HR partner. Each of these are extremely important to the health and well being and growth of your company.
A great HR Partner knows your business. Not just business, but your business.
A HR Partner isn’t afraid to try new things.
A great HR Partner will allow risks to be taken. It is HR’s job to point out risk, not eliminate it.
HR Partners don’t pass the blame. They share responsibility.
And finally, great HR Partners take initiative. They don’t sit around waiting for direction.
