A quick list of reasons we must make HR matter more:
The organization improves only when individuals improve.
The biggest difference between you and your competition is your people and your effectiveness at leading them.
Nothing happens in business without people. Business = people = business. Or is that: People = business = people?
The customer experience will never exceed the employee experience.
Few things slow the pace of business more than mistrust. Few things expedite business more than trust. Trust doesn’t happen on spreadsheets, it happens between people.
HR touches all areas of the organization. Done well it fosters organizational health. Done poorly and every departments is affected (infected?).
Trends come and go, but the company will always need great people.
Leading is a very difficult job. HR (done right) helps leaders make better decisions.
