Human Resource is always critical for any organization’s growth and prospects. If we take care of them they will take care of us and maximum of the times they end up taking really better care than the former. Well this shouldn't be taken as a jibe for managers as we all work for one. But at times this equation doesn’t matches with the employees and they are not able to meet the expectations. I’ll elaborate by taking few scenarios where HR looks like a limiting factor, here they are:
1 They are not able to SCALE faster as with the organization demands (Hiring, Filing, Managing, Appraisal, complying with all the laws, Employee Relations, Safety, Compensation, Benefits, and many more). The list is exhaustive and can’t be put in 2 liners.
2 Thereof the quality suffers in talent acquisition and hence productivity which is closely inter-related.
3 Tech-update is not able to match with the employees pace and they are not able to make things work on time.
Here is what we all need is HR Buffer just like Buffer App, a better way to inform, delegate and manage. What if we have HR teams who knew this in advance (2-3 months), took all related trainings as expected, train core staff and ensures smooth transition? A complete pre-plan in place, how things will move if X gets implemented or may be Y. Deciding on implications and plan B, C, and D. We need teams who will act as a buffer in organization and takes all the pain of new processes in the beginning and later extend benefits to the team. This will really help to achieve the objectivity in installing a new solution in place.
So if you have your story of HR limitation and how you overpowered it, we’d like to hear from you. If you find it useful, please do share and give your views.
