HR has come a long way from throwing birthday parties, dictating rules and filing personnel records. There is still a huge need for our people to be recognized and directed, but they also need to be given freedom, inspired, mentored and challenged. My philosophy of HR TLC is not the party and police department of old school HR , but a strategy of Talent Management, Leadership and Communication:Talent Management: Attract/Train/Retain/Reward people to drive the business and create shareholder value. Right people in the right place at the right time with the right tools.Leadership: Pro-active trusted business partnership, evangelizing and aligning micro-cultures and challenging how we do things better within the framework of company goals/vision.Communication: Engagement and direction with all levels. Do your managers believe and communicate the same things as you, as your customers, as your shareholders?
