Q: HAS THE NEW SYSTEM ALLOWED THE HR DEPARTMENT TO CHANGE
ITS ROLE IN THE ORGANISATION?
A: HR as a function is moving closer to the business and
we are now perceived differently. It has allowed the business
to partner with HR in more important areas, such as talent
management and leadership development.
These areas can be focused on by the HR business partners
as the administrative work they were previously involved in
has been replaced by the self-service facilities provided
by the system.
It allows HR business partners to focus on what adds the
most value to the business and drive their people programmes
to achieve better outcomes for the organisation.
Some of the work the corporation is doing globally in terms
of leadership and changing its culture is right at the core
of what HR does. Having a global system like HR.net has helped
us partner with the businesses to drive our culture, productivity
and our relationships with our stakeholders to the next level.
