Human Resources ​Strategy is ​a Critical Part ​of the Business Plan

Human Resources Strategy

​The Chief Human Resources Officer is ​the Most Strategic Role After the CEO

For an organization to meet its goals, it is important to align your HR strategy with the overall business strategy. Many organizations forget to consider human resources planning as part of its business planning efforts.

  • Do you have a recruitment plan for hiring the right people?

    ​Business growth requires resources, and fast growing companies need top talent to grow and service their customers.  A recruitment plan that identifies the target sources to source talent helps.
  • Does your organization plan to grow this year? 

    If so, do you know how many hires you need to add to your team factoring in turnover and retirements, and ​ what positions in what months?  Recruitment is a pipeline and take forecasting in advance to generate the desired quality of candidates hired in time to meet business cycles.
  • Do you plan to cut operational costs ​this year? 

    If so, do you have an employee productivity plan to fully engage and realize the potential of your current team? Do you know what percentage of overhead and labour costs you may want to reduce?
    Power HR can facilitate an HR planning session with your senior management team to identify essential
    HR strategic objectives for your organization. We will partner with you to establish desired outcomes
    for this session.

High ​Employees Engagement Drives Profitability

Employee Engagement Surveys and Interviews Inform ​Your HR Strategy

  • Power HR has designed and delivered employment surveys and interviews for many of its clients.  We can design meaningful questions to collect critical data and generate insights from employees on what they like about your workplace and what ​the employer and management team can do better.  
  • We will analyze the data, and make recommendations on what your human resources plan should focus on over the upcoming year based on employees feedback. ​Many organizations are conducting employee net promoter score surveys on a quarterly or monthly basis now, and not just an annual engagement survey.

Accurate Workforce Plans Ensure ​ ​Sufficient Labour ​​ to Deliver for Your Clients

The Right Talent to Meet Your Business Goals

  • With ​business transformation happening right now with technology and automation, workforce planning is more ​​important than ever. Power HR can build a a ​workforce plan ​that factors in your projected number of hires required to meet your business ​requirements.  
  • We can build in ​the impact of your turnover rate and projected retirements to determine the number of net new hires your organization requires to meet its business goals.  
  • Your business needs to plan its ramp ups and seasonal periods through workforce planning or you will be paying for labour that you do not require, or you will not have the roles filled to deliver on your client projects when you need it.

Change Management Plans Improve the Probability of Success for ​Transformation Projects ​

Power HR is Prosci Certified in Change Management​

  • People impacting organizational changes often fail because little thought or attention is given to the people impact and communication.  Human beings are naturally adverse to change and will resist it.  
  • This makes it mission critical to get the buy-in to make your change a success through the design of a change management plan.  This involves identifying key change stakeholders and where each team member sit on the change continuum for the particular change occurring.  
  • We can partner with you to create the right level of awareness of the changes happening, and create desire among stakeholders to make your change a success.
