Human Resource executives were reminded yesterday of their vital role to any business and the need to stand up and truly be counted.
International business consultant Caryn Walsh stressed this to the attendees at the BSP Fiji Human Resources Institute Convention.
The three-day convention is held at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa on Denarau Island in Nadi.
“It’s time for the CEO’s and HR to work strategically together – away from the administrative bog–where HR propels the organisation’s human energy forward,” she said.
She stressed HR should be aligned with the CEO building and assigning talent at all levels.
“It’s time for HR to get serious about understanding where and how they need to add value to the business. Do it with conviction and discipline,” she said.
Ms Walsh said HR personnel needed to pay more attention on relevant ways to increase productivity in any business.
“It is vital because if they don’t become more strategic focus and relevant, they will struggle to make the critical impact they need to make as HR practitioners,” she said.
Ms Walsh also encouraged the business partners and HR departments to work strategically by leading by being examples of change.
“You should be inspiring and be the change you need to be. Happy people results in enhanced productivity and increased profits,” she said.
“HR is a critical component of employee well-being in any organisation, no matter the size.
“Your responsibility includes payroll, hiring, firing and keeping up to date with law.”
