The road to HR excellence is paved with giant boulders

So it may seem!  If the thought of driving an initiative to improve your current HR processes causes anxiety . . .  you’re not alone.

The thought of this effort can cause great stress for some.  You know you need to do something because manual processes don’t scale. Your organization looks very different today than it did several years ago and the people may be new.   Has that little voice inside your head been asking:

  • Where do I start?
  • What can I do before we initiate a project and start burning through budget dollars?
  • How much budget do I need?
  • What applications do I need?
  • How can I mitigate the impact on payroll and financial reporting?
  • What will ensure success?
  • Is there an instruction book for this?

Take the first step to talent management readiness

For some, these questions can paralyze an organization.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  There is a method to driving operational excellence, making sure you have the right resources, then driving the effort forward.  The road to talent management requires solid planning. Sounds a bit like a cross-country road trip doesn’t it?  Destination Excellence!

The one question people forget to ask as they enter this journey is “Where are we headed?”  You simply MUST align your effort to the overall direction of the organization.  By doing so, not only will you gain the momentum for process improvement, but you’ll define the direct link of the HR efforts to the people on the front lines every day.

Take a minute, go to your company’s website and find the mission, vision and values.  How long did it take you to find them?  Is there a clear statement of direction?  If the answer is “no” then it’s time to start the conversation and begin your journey to HR excellence.

We’ll be gathering soon at Inforum 2016 in New York City.  The city that has encouraged new beginnings and promises of a better future for thousands of people over hundreds of years.  Let’s begin a journey together.  A journey towards continuous improvement and a better way of working.  Let me help you reinvent HR.  Let’s make sure you’re ready to grab your seat at the table when the music stops. Go from being a workforce to a force that works.   See you in the Big Apple!
