3 ways to break out of the HR silo and add value
By Amy Beth Miller, editor of The Organized Executive
If you start thinking about hiring for a position when your organization is ready to advertise it, you’re late to the game. Here are three actions you should be taking now:
- Dig in to your organization. Intensify your understanding of how your company makes money. Read the annual report, ask questions beyond the scope of your job and meet regularly with your colleagues in the operations and finance departments. Understand the talents your organization needs now and in the future, so you will be better able to fill those roles.
- Identify gaps. Pinpoint the areas where your organization may lack the technical or leadership skills it will need to succeed in the coming years. Prepare now to fill any looming skills gaps.
- Prepare useful reports. Mine your files for information that will allow your executives to make better workforce decisions, with data about employee productivity and development.
