“Our People are our Strength” – this is one core Value that many organisations boast of…
When People are your most important resource, which would be your most important
It cannot be Sales or Production or Marketing, it has to be your HR that takes care of your people…it nurtures them
Here are some essential Skills / Competencies that your HR MUST have:
Business Understanding – It’s very important for your HR to understand your business, its challenges & requirements. Unless they know this, how will they identify and nurture the best #talent for you? Let them understand your business and then determine what is the RIGHT talent for you. Their role is much more than Hiring and managing your people
Coaching – These are again very important skills for an HR. They are not just the messenger of Management or the ones who are chosen to deliver the bad news often.
They must know how to deal with such situation and manage your people. Enough of ” What can I do…its a management decision…” Their role is to build a strong culture where employees are encouraged to adapt, execute, comply & contribute
This workforce, most commonly referred to as Talent is what drives the Success which makes HR all the more important. The process of identifying these Talents has to be a carefully drafted system to ensure the RIGHT workforce that takes the organization on the growth trajectory. One common mistake that the HRs/Organisations make is to find suitable Talent outside. Each individual is good and possesses some special abilities but all of them might not suit your business needs.
Don’t go for the Qualification & Experience only; look for Skills
Stage 2: Assigning the RIGHT Tasks
Now that we have identified the right resource, we need to plant them well in the right place. Basis their skills, interest areas & an attitude we need to deploy them in the right function and give them the space to perform and grow. Keep in mind their skills, background, attitude and most importantly their career aspiration while deploying them. Even the best of the seed needs the right place to germinate.
It has to be a diligent Deployment
Stage 3: Nurture them
abilities, guide them, train them and help them increase their performance level. You need a lot of emotional bonding with your People and provide them with the confidence that you are there to take care of them. This bonding is magical; you can experience the exceptional performance
Don’t just monitor, handhold them
Stage 4: Give them the Opportunity to Grow
need more Talent at the next level. Continue to trust their abilities and show them opportunities to learn new things and grow. This will also give them a sense of
belongingness & ownership and you get total commitment & determination in return.
You only need to create a supportive environment; develop a strong learning culture
