Human Resource Departments are being pressured as never before to demonstrate their contribution and value to their organization. One indication of that is the emergence of so-called HR transformation. While HR transformation is sometimes a term in search of meaning, it usually means a fundamental rechartering of what the organization’s HR Department is to do, why it exists, and what efforts it undertakes. CEOs have continually stated that they want proactive HR Departments that operate at the strategic rather than tactical or transactional level. Senior HR managers direct their HR workers to improve how they work as partners with line managers. And yet everyone is sometimes too often disappointed. This workshop describes how to reinvent and fundamentally transform HR in an organization, describing various strategic choices for a new HR so as to transform HR into a true business partner. To meet the challenge of the future, HR practitioners must move beyond filling the role of HR technical professionals to becoming true strategic OD change agents.
