Human Resources has evolved several times over the years from Personnel through various changes often driven by “what’s hot” with compliance and programs as an anchor…sometimes hindering the influence HR should have in a Company.

Today, the value proposition is finally becoming evident in that a true partnership can, should and will deliver what a business needs around talent and people in times of high growth and contraction. HR is a stabilizer and a disruptor both; it is that BALANCE that affects top-line growth and bottom-line results that are sustainable.

Let’s spell it out; quick highlights:

  • Business ROI – program, practice, delivery and results
  • Affectivity – YOU- across functions, cultures, norms, etc.
  • Leveraging differences – from traditional Diversity and Inclusion – more than a concept or program, a critical asset to growth and engagement
  • Accountability leads to Actualization
  • No longer “NO” but rather new ideas, innovation and alternatives
  • C – Critical “6Cs” of Human Resources – Commitment, Compassion, Consistency, Community, Compliance and Communication
  • Excitement and engagement built on TRUST


Effective Human Resources can and often will determine success or failure.
