As a human resources consultant, how can you convince the leadership team of an organization you are familiar with to take a more long-term investment approach to their human assets that will lead to a qualified, satisfied, motivated, and committed workforce?
As you describe this organizational experience, consider the perspectives of senior leadership. Are these leaders seeking simple solutions to the complicated challenges of the present? Are they tradition-bound? What is their view of the HRM field? Note: These questions are not the focus of this discussion, but they help frame the reality that HR professionals must introduce new and different concepts to manage an organization’s workforce.
