HR is an important part for every Organization. The role of The HR department has to change from a more bureaucratic approach to a business partner. Some HR departments already have changed their title but didn’t change what they do. Understanding the business, what kind of projects are going on, what kind of Competencies do we need in this project, what kind of Competencies do we already have in our employees and which do we need to build. If somebody has a certain job and job level, what kind of Competencies should he have and how can I as HR make sure that he/she has them.

The other challenge is that latest in the year 2030 we will have a lack of Talented People. Companies have more Projects and Business than they can do, because they do not have enough Talented People. What does this mean? Companies need to be a “Great Place to Work” so that people want to join them. Companies need succession planning for their people, this is part of Talent Management. Succession planning is one reason why people join companies; money is not reason number #1.

Young and Talented People do want to have Managers and Leaders who build them and help them to grow. This is not just a problem in of the business, this is also valid for people inside of HR. Leaders of HR should know how to build up a modern Talent Management System, but they also should know how to build up their own people and coach them.
