Human Resources has come a long way since the days of ‘personnel’ it has become the forefront, driving business forward no matter what your sector.
The HR function expanded to become much more strategic and so was born HR business partnering. Moving beyond the remit of payroll, HR would now cover a much wider role across the business, focussing upon talent, organisational design, L&D and communications.
Every business will experience peaks and troughs, so it’s important these times are managed effectively, otherwise those light bulb moments don’t ever seem to materialise or your resources are not used effectively.
The dreaded work of ‘Compliance’, however we all know how important it is because it forms a part of our organisational duties with respect to the community it belongs to.
Similar to project management, businesses often experience peaks and troughs and usually offer overtime to already overworked or reluctant employees, use temporary staff or those admin jobs simply don’t get completed. Unlike a temp we will only have to be trained once, retain the information and use it when you next need that extra resource or support.
