In today's rapidly changing, constantly re-training world, where "people are our most important asset", an HR department should be central to strategic decision making. Yet, HR departments rarely contribute any strategic advantage to their company and perform tasks that could be done at less cost by an external supplier. In-house HR professionals are faced with a choice: either accept the challenge and create an entirely new role or risk the demise of HR as we know it through a process of downsizing and outsourcing. Whether you are a board level manager or an in-house HR specialist, this briefing shows you how to redesign your HR department to deliver measurable value to your organisation. Through extensive case studies, tools and models, it details the steps you need to take to change your HR function from a process-orientated function to one involved in strategic decision making at the highest level. Readers will learn how to: * Identify the need for change * Assess their department's current position and skill-set * Understand the information requirements of internal customers * Identify the skills required to deliver measurable value * Understand the strategy process and the implications for HR * Establish credibility with key figures in the organisation

"This is a volume that helps Human Resource practitioners to focus on the "proactive" rather than the "reactive" and therefore take their worth to the organisation into a new dimension." - Bill Steggals Vice President, Insoursing and Executive Recruitment Ingenix International "The book addresses the basics without being patronising, and the broader future focused concepts without resorting to pure theory, the book is informative, thought provoking and an easy read. A great hand book for any HR professional." - Bill Best Head of Assessment and Development Practice The Executive Coaching Centre Ltd "Often within an HR department there is a clear desire to change but what is required is both a philosophy as well as a practical structure to support this change. The book presents an excellent way forward by bringing HR into the main strategic hub of an organisation and helping to meet business targets. I believe the book will be valuable, both to senior management looking to maximise the value of HR operations as well as HR professionals at all levels." - Neil Ridsdale Managing Director Network Training "At last, an HR book which delivers the goods. Excellent for those wising to become more strategic and add value to their organisations." - Wayne Repich President Brokers Bank of America
