The role of human resources has evolved considerably since the days of Harry Levinson. If we're doing our jobs effectively we should be at the forefront of many organizational initiatives: employee impact, driving accountability, aware of and educating leadership on the ever changing regulatory environment, leading the way with social media, pushing leadership to make decisions, and so many others.
Our job is not to simply toil in a transactional world of forms and compliance paranoia. That was personnel...you work and lead the human resources function now.

How About You
For most of us taking that first step is a bit scary. I know it was for me. But once I realized that not only would I live through it, but I would actually begin to transform my HR team and how we interact with employees and the world, I realized there was no turning back.
Do you deliver the HR goods?
I'd love to hear from you.
