HR needs to have an ‘outside-in’ perspective of business according to Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert professor at Ross School of Business, University of Michigan.
“When I think about HR going forward, I think about perspective, outcomes and transformation. These are the three buckets of where we should be heading,” he told HR magazine editor Katie Jacobs.
“If an HR person doesn’t have a seat at the table I’d almost argue they should get out of our field,” Ulrich added.
In our exclusive new series of videos Ulrich, who is considered the father of the business partner model and has consistently been voted the most influential thinker in HR, looks at what drives business performance and how HR can help organisations succeed.
The series, kindly sponsored by MidlandHR, will also include insights on managing multiple stakeholders, analytics, transforming HR and speed teaching.
