Description

Dil Sidhu, Chief Extrenal Officer at Alliance MBS says 'This concept is something I’ve come across before with HR Professionals irrespective of sector.' The conversation often goes something like this:

HR Director: ‘If only the organisation would see the true value of Human Resources and provide us a seat at the Board table. We’re a little tired of learning about new merger, acquisition or other business strategy taking place to grow the organisation and then having to integrate new people. It would have been valuable to at the beginning of those discussions and not just at the end of them with a remit to make it all work!’

Business School: ‘Getting Human Resources a ‘seat the table’ is probably easy. The hard part is what are you going to add to the conversation when you get that seat and keep it?!

All too often, in silo-designed organisations, there are expert departments, like Human Resources, who know about their area of responsibility but may not be fully conversant about other elements of the organisation. Questions that require an answer include:

- From what sources does this organisation get its revenue or funding?

- What are the costs associated with the organisation ‘doing business’?

- What is the level of net profit, margin or surplus that is achieved?

- What next for the sector this organisation operates within?

- Which are our most valuable markets, brands, relationships, suppliers, competitors?

Having a perspective about all of these questions, and many more, are what being at the table entails.

What value would you and your Human Resources team be able to add once you have that coveted seat at the table?
