Have a ‘social’ New Year (and I don’t mean social networking)

January 14, 2011 at 9:15 pm Leave a comment

If you want to make huge strides in solving workforce-related problems this year, start by meeting with managers in other departments. Ask them what their biggest challenges are. That will inform how you develop talent management programs, hire new employees and raise employee engagement.

It’s more comfortable not to invite your production manager to lunch to learn about his biggest challenges. It’s easier not to hear your finance director complain about the lack of good talent even during an economic downturn. But if you don’t engage other departments on a regular basis, you’ll lose touch. None of your ideas will mesh with company needs and goals.

Ultimately, you’ll become the stereotypical HR manager who is viewed as a cost burden, rather than an asset to the bottom line.
