McKinsey: The CEO’s guide to competing through HR

The McKinsey CEO’s guide to competing through HR  showcases what can happen when HR steps out of its traditional silo and embraces a strategic role, explicitly using talent to drive value rather than just responding passively to the routine needs of businesses. This is a transformation many companies have been striving to make in recent years as corporate leaders seek to put into practice the mantra that their people are their biggest asset.

The starting point is for HR business partners – those senior HR individuals who counsel managers on talent issues – to stop acting as generalists and show that they really own the critical talent issue.  The business-partner role needs to be replaced with a new talent value leader, who would not only help business leaders connect talent decisions to value-creating outcomes but would also be held fully accountable for the performance of the talent.
