Most HR organizations think of themselves as a support function and not in terms of a business, but the reality is the HR function is competing with the P/L units you support for organizational resources. It is this lack of business preparedness that is a root cause of HR ineffectiveness and sub-optimization.
You know there is an annual budget process, and if you are on a fiscal calendar year, it will be in the Fall. You know there are annual strategic planning events, and again if your organization uses a fiscal calendar year, they will likely be in the Fall. But can you articulate a compelling business case for the funding and resources HR needs to support the organization and add value to the business?
