How important is human resources? People are the future. High quality, well trained, motivated and interested people. We may be living in the digital age but we have more people working now in the UK economy than EVER before.
What differentiates one business from another in a time when many can access the same technical and systems capability is inevitably people. A company is but another name for a group of people.
The role of Human Resources is arguably more relevant now than it ever has been. HR needs to be part of the macro economic strategy for the enterprise of today and tomorrow.
The HR professional not only needs to understand the business and ensure the workforce is fit for the future, but also navigate a minefield of regulation and red-tape, changing economics and ever more demanding and educated workforces.
