Hello (Cite Contribution),

Thank you for posting a very interesting article on the future role of HR champions.

As you may be aware in the past HR had at least two senior partners in its place

before it entered the scenes in mid EIGHTIES in India.

Personnel & Administrative functions - as they were popularly known as then -

were to take care of the routine Administration , recruitment.fulfillment of various

statutory compliance, safety etc.

Suddenly HUMAN RESOURCES was talked about every where.

A Ministry was also created at the National level headed by a senior person

who later went on to become the Prime Minister of India.

(A useful info to all the HR heads. They can quote this in their future presentations!!)

Be it a top official or a high flying executive of the EIGHTIES,

on the lighter side every one used to say that they themselves

were not clear of what was expected of them !!

A lot of water has flown since then and in the next three decades our country has seen

and has had the benefit of many a HR person contributing immensely.

The new vistas brought out in the article are a welcome change.

As rightly observed the routine matters involving pay roll , compliances, training etc are

to be handled at a lower level or outsourced.

Progressive companies in India are giving due respect to HR.

I know for sure that in Aditya Birla Group HR Director sits in the board and that is for many years now.

In addition to that he also heads a particular manufacturing division at Global Level.

The person at the helm of affairs in HR in any organization has a chance of moving closely with others who head their respective functions.So he does have an exposure to what they do. If the HR person is given a chance to handle other functions in a small way, it will boost his confidence and also give him an opportunity to gain cross functional knowledge.With the new experience gained, CEOs can gainfully utilize the HR stewards for the better.
