How do you define the Leadership in HR in the present environment?
RG Leaders in HR always have a challenging role to play. Post pandemic the business environment has been more than just volatile. During and post pandemic the role of HR leaders has become further challenging. On the one hand they need to partner closely with management and CEO to ensure business continuity and on the other hand they need to address people safety, anxieties, stress, up-skilling, re-skilling, re-shaping of jobs depending on the sector and the industry. The pandemic has also resulted in shrinkage of several business and sectors. Along with that come the issues related to job losses, stress and other factors. HR leaders on one hand need to take care of the interest of the organisation and on the other hand ensure they play the role of employee advocacy. Constantly balancing both the role expectation plus delivering operational support to business creates a dynamic expectation from the role.
