Is HR Playing a Strategic Role in Your Organization?
What’s the best change my organization can make to prepare for the future?
What makes an Ee want to stay with my organization?
How are we going to invest in HR so that my organization has a better HR dept than our competition?
Source: Halcrow (1988), reported in Noe et al. (2003)
Bernardin (2003) indicates that only eleven percent of SHRM members have HR certification via HRCI
DMP not sure this figure is accurate – Bates (2002) reports ~56,000 HR professionals have passed a certification exam; 54% of PHR candidates are SHRM members, 72% of SPHR candidates (HRCI State of the Institute Report 2002).
Note: knowledge itself is insufficient to contribute to high-performing organization – must put knowledge into practice….Achieving results more important to personal credibility than getting along well w/mngt team.
David Ulrich (U of Michigan): “We have to shift the focus of HR away from training and process to the outcomes, away from a people function to an organization function. I’m not optimistic about all HR people” making that transition.
