More and more often in today's dynamic, even volatile, business environments, companies are relying on their senior Human Resource colleagues to assist them in managing their businesses to achieve success.
The Human Resources function interacts with every facet of an organisation's operations. Progressive leadership in Human Resources requires significant expertise to support the business, whether the company is growing or downsizing. Human Resources executives serve as vital partners to senior leadership, aligning the integral HR function with the business strategy.
There are many functional areas within Human Resources and IIC Partners' Human Resources Practice Group members have substantial experience, including:
- Talent management
- Compensation and benefits
- Talent acquisition
- Employee and labour relations
- Training and development
- Generalist roles
Identifying talented Human Resources executives who possess not only the needed technical qualifications, but also the right leadership and interpersonal style, is critical in our work as executive search consultants. Human Resources executives must be adaptable, effective in leading change - and able to relate well to executives as well as all employees. In addition, they need a high level of interpersonal savvy to build trust and confidence within the organisation.
