Take HR to the Next Level

8 in 10 HR functions are completing or will soon undergo an HR Transformation.

Maximizing the effectiveness of the HR function can increase business unit revenue and profit by up to 7% and 9%, respectively.

But the majority of HR Transformations fail. HR effectiveness has declined 8% over the past three years, and HR lags all other functions with only 15% of its high performers capable of succeeding in today's dynamic, complex work environment.

The Keys to a Successful HR Transformation

Only 33% of line managers feel that their HR function is effective at supporting them.

Increasing the volume of HR interactions, however, is not the solution. Leading companies regularly assess functional performance against a structured framework, with assessment results guiding immediate action steps and establishing a path to mature the function.

The most common reason HR Transformations fail is misalignment with broader business strategy. Leading HR teams invest in improving the business application of talent management data and processes.

» Increase the Impact of HR Data on the Business

The strategic HR Business Partner (HRBP) role can improve HR-line support effectiveness by up to 33%.

But HR often struggles to maximize the strategic impact of its HRBPs as well as staff in traditionally transactional roles (such as recruiters and L&D professionals). HR can increase the strategic value of individuals across the specialist team by establishing clear, business-relevant role expectations and enabling application of skills in day-to-day work.
