The HR function is a high-value-added part of the organisation and plays a key role in developing and implementing corporate strategy. This is because of the growing importance of human capital in organisational success.
The HR function needs to be more effective as a strategic partner in the organisation rather than a purely administrative function. Such an HR function will drive and deliver change rather than just react to it.
In order to achieve this highly desired prize, the HR function must develop its ability to measure how HR decisions affect the organisation and how the decisions taken by the organisation affect human capital. In short, the HR function needs to develop better metrics and analytics if it is to become a true strategic partner.
Once the metrics are established, the organisation will need to develop HR policies that react to the messages. The course will also consider the type of HR policies that are being developed in response to the usual range of messages from the metrics and analytics.
