I listened to many comments on the podcasts that disparage the HR functions. I understand why: the HR department does not meet a standard of effective performance. The department does not increase the value of the company commiserate with the costs of the department. Fair enough.
So what would the standard look like? What would the HR do differently? Perhaps a top 3 items/tasks/processes to Start, Stop and Continue would help flesh out the picture of an effective HR.
The data alone would be very interesting. And it might reveal how far, or how close, our actual HR departments are to the standard.
Thank you for the time and thought to this question.
