What Is a Human Capital Developer and Why Should HR Be Worried?

Posted on May 26th, 2016 Read time: 2 minutes

More HR professionals have been leaving tech companies due to professional dissatisfaction. These companies lack active, engaging roles for HR staff beyond administrative tasks. Learn how you can use this lesson for reconfiguring your own HR department to meet your workforce needs. 

  • Lack of Defined Roles

Due to the changing nature of work, many companies struggle to define HR’s roles and responsibilities while engaging staff in an organization’s overall vision. For many accomplished HR managers in the technology sector, the department offers limited growth and opportunities. Although these bright professionals want to develop thriving workplaces creating the best products and services, company executives typically aren’t utilizing their resources to help attain those goals. 

  • Change in Roles

In the past HR staff have had a reputation for hiring and firing within an organization. Now HR’s role has changed to include managing culture and developing leadership instead. Companies need to look for capability, growth, scalability, and desire for learning in its HR professionals. They should invest in HR staff with the drive and passion to go beyond expectations, just as a company invests in its products or services.

  • Lack of Training

Because technology advances rapidly, the nature of the workforce changes with lightning speed. Departments’ roles and talents shift. Because employee satisfaction is vital to an organization’s success, management must invest in developing leaders to help with company growth. Therefore, recruiters need to be trained as specialists rather than generalists to assist with networking, talent acquisition, and change management. HR leaders must learn company brand and culture development as well as talent engagement and retention. 

  • Time and Money

HR duties must encompass a wider range of responsibilities, such as being chief designers in developing and managing the employee experience. More time and money will be saved by attracting, engaging, developing, and retaining the next generation of human capital across organizational departments.

  • Becoming a Human Capital Developer

HR is the face of a company when recruiting top talent. Connecting with and engaging talent is a critical function in any organization. The role demands a special skill set for understanding each position being hired for, as well as how a candidate can evolve with the company’s long-term goals. The workforce is not static; remaining competitive involves being open to and planning for rapid change. To efficiently benefit the company, an HR professional must be involved in strategic development. 

HR departments need to be filled with skilled professionals possessing interpersonal, analytical, and critical-thinking skills that help drive the company forward. Most administrative work can be outsourced to companies such as ours so key personnel can focus on developing top talent.
