The Analytical role of Human Resources!
It has once again got me thinking about what is going on within my profession and institute!!
The fact that the CIPD is now kicking off collaboration with the Charted Institute of Management Accountants means what??
That it has taken to the year 2013 for all those professionals out there and our own Institute to realize that HR professionals need to understanding BIG DATA!! The new buzz word!!
We have always had to understand metrics and what the ROI of HR is and what added value means.
The fact that we still make such a big issue of data knowledge is an ongoing concern and little wonder why only the very few HR folks get recognized at the highest levels of the business.
In my blog “HR folks just don’t get it and its getting old!”
I made the point that it about time we really focused on the fact that HR needs to understands business first!!
After all why would we hire anyone that does not make our business more profitable, successful and grow?
If HR cannot do any of these then there is no role for HR. We do a disservice to the business and importantly the people who we hire and develop.
I was asked once why do I understand so much about finance.
My answer was and will always be. It is because I know finance that I can save jobs and develop and grow the people within the business and in turn the business.
