The Evolution of HRâ€™s Role
Over the last decade, the role of HR has evolved to include a variety of areas. These areas include, but are not limited to: (a) the value of having a diverse workforce, (b) inshoring and outsourcing personnel management, (c) repatriating employees from foreign assignments, (d) ethical leadership methods and corporate culture, (e) local and global security against terrorism, and (f) upward career pathing to counter possible perception of a glass ceiling.
For this interactive assignment, you will take on the role of an HR professional who has been tasked with researching potential areas that have evolved over the past decade. You will create a business case, to be delivered to the director of HR, justifying the value of an area of your choosing.
Select one of the areas above, and evaluate the potential challenges and conflicts of your selected topic.
Your business case must include the following justifications for your area:
- How a diverse workforce drives economic growth,
- Increased market share,
- A more qualified workforce,
- Reduced employee turnover cost, and
- Why the area is necessary for a competitive economy in a global market place.
In your initial post, send an email presenting your business case to the director of HR. Provide a brief summary of why you feel your selected area is critical to the organizationâ€™s success.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words.
