It's well-known that the function of HR used to be highly transactional & administrative -the place people would go to get hired or fired. Those days are long gone. Now, with the way the future of work is evolving making way for more innovation and an employee-centric focus, HR should be called on as a strategic partner with a voice for supporting leadership; change and talent to enable organisations to achieve greatness.

We explored what it might it look like if HR had a seat at your executive table and addressed your most fundamental concerns by turning your organisational performance challenges into greater opportunities.

Dear C- Suite,

As someone running a small to medium size company, we understand your primary goal is to make a profit and improve the efficiency in your organisation. We also recognise your desire to stay ahead of the innovation curve by being at the forefront of technology.

We have noticed that the number of challenges in your way are blocking the progress required to achieve your goals. As a senior executive with endless responsibilities and a seemingly infinite to-do list, someone in your position simply does not have enough hours in the day to tackle all the tasks that are needed to inspire and enable greatness in your teams. 

The truth is, running an efficient and effective business and satisfying your customers requires significant time, meticulous planning - and the right people. These priorities leave little headspace for much else. We have met many in a position such as yourself - where ambition, creativity, and intelligence are in abundance, however, their talent pool is left without their basic needs met, such as training and development, team development & effectiveness and organisational well-being.

An organisation is a complex system that requires an intricate balance of factors to perform optimally. And it all starts with your employees. As a fast-growing company, hiring the best talent needs to be at the forefront of your organisation’s mission. Recruiting and training new employees takes time. An unfilled position means work is not getting done; while newly hired employees must go through a steep learning curve before their work becomes profitable. Seeing as though we have time & expertise on our side, we would be happy to support you in achieving your goals and driving your strategies forward so that you can focus on what you do best - building relationships, innovating and scaling your business. 

We say this because we care about your success - after all, your ability to grow and develop the talent in your organisation is what drives the economy, inspires innovation and unlocks potential that should be celebrated. We are always here for you if you need any support - or just want someone to talk to.

Yours truly,

HR.
