How can you advance your employees’ career?
As head of HR, you are in constant motion: Strategically positioning and mobilizing the right resources at the right time and place in relation to current market conditions as well as emerging business opportunities, require continual adjustments in the staff. This will result in career development plans and both internal as well as external outplacements.
When you help your employees advance in new career paths, you demonstrate professionalism and responsibility towards them - and in addition you contribute to overall social responsibility. Whether it be career development for employees you want to strengthen or in those situations when you must sever the relationship.
What do you do when you have to downsize or discharge employees?
Call it image management or branding. It’s all about creating a win-win situation for you as an organization even during the transitional, reorganization phase. It ensures that you maintain momentum as well as retain talent within the organization. You set the bar high when your goal is:
To show respect for your employees
To support and develop your leaders to deal with difficult/sensitive discussions
To generate a positive reputation internally as well as externally
To assure that your employees move forward with their careers
To establish safe parameters for the discharged employees to process the situation, foster motivation and consider new possibilities
To quickly restore equilibrium, assurance and focus with the remaining employees
To send a strong signal of social responsibility that promotes the CSR strategy
