Today’s Biggest HR Administration Challenges

Posted on: February 25, 2020 by iSure

Human resources is based on a strong understanding of the strategic corporate direction, along with the ability to influence key policies and decisions. 

Human resource administration challenges must be defined and solutions determined in order thrive. The fluctuating economy and local and global advancements has brought many changes to the HR forefront.  

Top Challenges

Change Management

When businesses transform from a start-up to a more established operation, owners must accept they can no longer be involved in every aspect of operations. It is very common for founders and/or owners to struggle with transitioning from an entrepreneur role to a strong leadership position. 

Often, owners want to remain in control of influence across all areas of the business and continue to make all key decisions, but they have to come to terms with where HR needs to step in, and give them the power and autonomy needed to fulfill their role for the success of the business.

In turn, HR professionals must be prepared to assert their influence within these growing companies if they are to make things happen, embracing  that entrepreneurial spirit of their own and exuding the confidence to win people over, all while demonstrating how they truly benefit the business. Otherwise, HR will simply exist to do the management paperwork. 

Leadership Development

According to Villanovau.com, leadership development is a critical strategic initiative ensuring that the right employees are retained, organization culture supports performance from within to gain market position, and that managers are equipped to take on leadership roles of the future so that the organization is set up for long term.

HR professionals are expected to provide the essential structures, processes, tools, and points of view to make the best selection and develop the future leaders of the organization. 

Effectiveness Measurement

HR must be capable of measuring results of transaction management and measure positive influence on business. 

HR should utilize metrics to determine effectiveness, to be viewed as a true strategic partner within the organization, rather than just an administrative function.

For instance, HR departments have traditionally focused on simply counting the numbers hired, but now should seek to find ROI of collective and individual hires on a long-term basis.

To meet or exceed these challenges, proven tools and strategies must be used. Third party HR outsourcing is a valuable asset for companies who want to take these burdens off their hands.
