HR SUMMIT 20:20 HR STRATEGIES – THE ROUTE TO HRM 2020Tsunami, earthquakes, uncertainties and turbulence in business are a few common termswhich have repeatedly bombarded our ears, struck our minds and made us think twice as towhat comes next. As a result of globalization, business today, is no more an internalmonopoly of a few to control its survival at will without addressing the needs of all its stakeholders.To stand up this challenge, industry has struggled to evolve strategies to remain in existencein business despite tough competition of the global products available anywhere andeverywhere. While a few business houses in India have met the challenge by re -alignmentand continuous review of their business strategies to face the challenges by learning fromtheir own as well as failures of others, many have simply vanished.The components of global impact on business are multiple, ironically, one most underrateddrivers of business, namely HR in the conventional sense has now become morepronounced. The most critical support to any business from survival to excellence is providedby the asset of any organization that is the human capital which also drives businessesthrough technology. But the competitive edge in business stands only when it is revived withthe HR perspective of an organization.The world is dominated by one surety that is the “uncertainty of the future”, which one cannotpredict. The lifecycle of the product, return on investment, customers’ hostility emanating fromcost and quality with a multiplier effect of the global recession impact the business.So, the alternatives left for the industry is to focus on cutting the cost, outsourcing,downsizing, panic-driven action, diversifying more due to crisis rather then to a well knit planof a strategic move. The situations looks to be more threatening than assuring and so is thechallenge of HR. However, if HR gears up to its potential, it can make the difference in thesurvival of any business; as well can actually take it to new heights. The slogan may be“Survival of the fittest” but HR can make it “Survival as the fit - test”.Today, the scenario for HR looks somewhat like 20 - 20 cricket challenging the conventionalstyle to innovation. The stakeholders and the shareholders have to manage their own showsas the Government on the other side is bound because of the political factors and restrictiveindustrial laws.At a time when uncertainties in the business are more visible than ever before, HR assumesthe most pivotal role. It takes the lead by shaping HR strategies from conventional toinnovative, entrepreneurial attitudes in employees, creating a flexible workforce addressingissues. They are instrumental in ensuring involvement of employees in understanding theirrole in the business and the customer’s need satisfaction.This calls for the total rethinking in the minds of the HR professionals to play their role notonly as crisis managers, but as leaders. They are the ones who anticipate the factors ofcrisis and address before its inception, in terms of building employee competence in quickdecision making. It is important to address the cost of manufacturing and each employee’scommitment in thinking of alternatives in terms of products and services.It is critical that HR professionals must learn to anticipate changes and understand what isnecessary to implement it. They must understand business decisions by balancing a range offactors that often conflict with one another. It requires the focus on ISSUE and not thePERSONALITIES. The HR professionals have to have a global mindset with compe tence ofunderstanding business imperatives necessary for organizational strategies with sensitivity.
