Employee Empowerment has been a popular HR Jargon for long. However, the latest buzzword in corporate parlance is ‘HR Empowerment

Powerful people weren’t born powerful. They are skilled individuals who go on to become powerful through the respect cultivated through their consistent use of time tested resources.

Experts gathered at Personal Swiss an HR exhibition held in Zurich, Switerzerland, claim that only a few HR executives are involved in core strategic planning activities. One of the reasons for this may be that HR, in many enterprises, is seen as a cost factor than a value factor., & HR targets are often set with a focus on short term cost reduction than long-term value generation, they emphasizes.

Alexander R Petsch, CEO, Spring Messe Management , a company based in Germany that organizes HR exhibitions in different countries, explains below why the concept of HR Empowerment will take time to be implemented:

1. Rethink: In order to empower HR for more important functions, besides administrative, the management has to revise their thinking. HR is not able to sell its services well within the company. Hence , the management often underestimates HR’s valuable knowledge.
2. Realise: Most companies discuss the role of HR as a business partner but don’t know how to marry HR needs with that of the management’s.

3. Revise: For HR to be taken seriously by the management , they have to deliver reliable figures.

But Peter Petsch also provides three ways through which the role of HR can be empowered:

1 Partner: A business partnership, is only possible if HR is given the decision-making power and that, it should be represented in the highest executives committess including board of directors.

2. Position: For the HR department to have more capacities for new strategies, administrative tasks should , if possible , be transferred to shared service centres.

3.Practice: Empowering HR also means strengthening their skills & expertise to face bigger challenges. Business knowledge is a must, as well as basic knowledge of the respective operations. Hence a stronger orientation towards further education is crucial.
