#TChat Preview: Should HR Be Split Into Two Branches?

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET.

Last week we talked about how authentic storytelling in the workplace impacts talent strategies.

This week we’re going to talk about whether or not HR in the enterprise should be split into two branches.

One of the hottest topics being discussed at the C-suite level is whether HR should be split into two distinct functions – one that handles administration and one that manages leadership and organization.

Research by Bersin by Deloitte supports the split because HR is swamped with administrative tasks. Nearly 50 percent of business and HR leaders surveyed said their companies are “weak” on preparing HR to deliver programs aligned with business needs.

HR technology brings efficiencies to a complex administrative process. The right technology enables HR to scale certain tasks in a way that humans never can.

HR needs to leverage this ability to fulfill a critical role in the organization’s business strategy.

Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we we learn about whether HR should be split into two distinct functions with this week’s guest: Todd Owens, Chief Executive Officer at TalentWise.
