Corporate Human Resources Management Programs
SiriSampada Consultants has found a close inter-relationship between the two dimensions that govern the effectiveness of human resources in the organization: skill and motivation. This inter-relationship demands that Corporate Human Resources Management programs be based on the recognition of certain phenomena: (1) a high incidence of skill obsolescence due to present rate of technological progress; (2) conflicting perceptions of social values; and (3) an advanced level of formal education in society.
We have also found the need to distinguish between education and training. Education is the acquisition of a knowledge of principles and the ability to relate such principles, while training is the acquisition of a knowledge of procedures and the ability to apply them. While educational programs do not necessarily have to be based on the particular characteristics of an organization, the training programs must be based on such characteristics.
Corporate Human Resources Management programs must include:
- Identifying skills required;
- Defining personnel selection procedures;
- Defining promotion policies;
- Selecting and/or developing educational and training materials;
- Selecting and developing instructors;
- Transferring newly gained knowledge and skills to actual work environment;
- Organizing administrative procedures; and
- Evaluating performance.
Corporate Human Resources Management Plans
Governments, business and labour recognize that, even during times of high unemployment, there are critical shortages of skilled workers. Companies that do not have the benefit of Corporate Human Resources Management plans will find themselves unable to meet their project goals and will be faced with work delays and cost overruns.
Effective Corporate Human Resources Management strategies encompass the following six critical activities:
- Assessment of HR requirements;
- Recruitment planning;
- Design of training programs;
- Development of staff retention strategies;
- Pay/benefits research; and
- Improvement of employer/employee relations.
In order to identify the Corporate Human Resources needs of a company SiriSampada Consultants reviews with the client the organization’s goals, objectives and priorities. A conceptual approach is proposed which leads to the development of specific Corporate Human Resources plans. The end result is a functional and operational plan capable of utilizing the potential labour force.
