The HR as a function has definitely come a long way. It has gone through multiple evolutions and continues to weather all manner of storms be they political, technological, economical, social etc. This glowing commentary of success unfortunately isn’t widespread across all HR functions. Without capacity to evolve, many HR professionals struggle to generate expected and meaningful impact in their roles.
With the relentless rate of flux now prevalent, the challenges clearly are gravely significant. The need therefore to gain, nimble, adaptive and flexible competences in responding intelligently to emerging threats have never been greater than it is today. With incessant pressures for HR to do more in offering their organizations increased chance at survival cum success, HR professionals are left with little or no option than to step up their game-yet again.
But there seem to be daunting hurdles seeing that many HR professionals do not have requisite agile postures required to make significant impact. By insisting on rigid norms and traditions, they miss opportunities to shift behaviors and cultures that could give their internal customers and organizations at large an edge against the competition. Thankfully, mindset and behaviors can change; Agile competences can be gained and HR can more readily be that responsive, human-centric, collaborative and adaptive function it is meant to be.
