Steering a path that values the needs of all stakeholders; developing approaches that stick; taking the long-term view while role-modeling the organisation’s values and giving HR balance.
The Seven Enablers were identified in Enable-HR’s research into what drives excellence in HR.
We researched what businesses want from HR and distilled this into the activities and behaviours that drive successful relationships and results. Enable-HR provides a framework to understand and evaluate how HR operates, and then to align, develop and inspire HR people.
No other function has to balance so many interests, day in and day out. There are inherent tensions in many Human Resources activities that can make our role a minefield. For example, helping line managers respond to short-term business goals with a quick fix, and yet HR will be held responsible for upholding values and morals.
Every decision has to be considered carefully, and inclusively. At times we are the arbitrator or the policeman, and at others the facilitator or the coach. Sometimes we move between these varied roles during just one meeting. These positions demand a range of behavioural responses as well as intellectual. We have to resist pressure from the most senior or loudest voice in moments that can feel career-threatening. Yet it is in these moments that we grow in stature and prove our mettle as the organisation’s conscience.
