Addressing the top priorities of today’s HR leaders in order to survive a tough
Human Resource is the most important asset of any organization. An organization will
not be able to sustain its business without an effective pool of workforce. Today, as
the economic situation worsens, it becomes an even bigger challenge for HR leaders
worldwide to manage their workforce.Maintaining employee morale and engagement is one
of the most critical challenge of a HR leader, especially at times like this when most
organizations are downsizing and cutting cost in many areas. In order to survive in
today’s competitive business world, the priorities of a HR leader must begin to
shift from an operational to a more strategic approach.
The main objective of this “HR Revolution” is to address the top priorities
of today’s HR leaders in a tough economy. It is an excellent arena to learn how
leading corporations are maintaining the engagement and morale of their workforce while
cutting down cost of operations.
The financial turmoil and global economic crisis are forcing companies to look more
closely at expenses and seek efficiency gains in their businesses. In order to maneuver
through the storm, many companies have to take measures to decrease various operation
costs such as personnel expenditure, improve the return on investment on human capital
expenditures and maintain focus on the long-term business objectives of the company.
Global unemployment will increase “dramatically” in 2009 as a consequence
of the economic crisis sweeping the world, the United Nations’ International
Labor Organization (ILO) warned.The ILO predicts that Asia is likely to have 7.2
million more jobless people in 2009 than last year due to fallout from the global
economic crisis, raising the region’s jobless rate to 5.1 percent.
In Indonesia, nearly a quarter of a million jobs have been lost since September 2008.
Foreign managers have been confronted with domestic labor debates and international
financial pressures. Striking employees, worker migrations, layoffs, and minimum wage
and severance pay debates continue to shape the labor climate in Indonesia. These have
taken form as the future key problems facing HR managers and the government. The
unemployment rate in Indonesia is estimated to be more than 8 percent and rising.
HR Management will be a key area of focus in 2009 as companies and government
organizations put in place strategies to cope with the economic crisis and recovery.
The HR leader today faces the challenge of going through a transformative change, from
being just “ back room” business operators to becoming more strategic
