Great HR is more than a back room function

15 March 18

Many business leaders see HR as a back room function responsible for writing employment policies, administering staff and dealing with performance and conduct issues.

All important stuff, for sure.

But great HR people do so much more than that.

Great HR people help organisations maximise the performance of their people to achieve the company vision and goals.

They challenge leaders at all levels to be outstanding, knowing that better performance is always achieved through people.

They identity and deliver the specific and evidence based organisational support and development that people and teams need to excel.

They help provide purpose and meaning for people at work.

How great is your HR?


Norman was commissioned to assist the Naval Families Federation as we embarked on a comprehensive review of our strategy. He is a skilled facilitator and helped us to ensure that the whole team’s input was heard and valued. His input gave us confidence in our approach and put us in a strong position to take forward work on our theory of change, and ultimately to deliver a coherent strategy to take the organisation forward.
