Accessing Gaps and HR Roles: Keeping Current on MNC Trends
Resources, both economic and human, are in a dynamic relationship of constant change. As an HR professional, it is your responsibility to stay up-to-date on these changes and recognize that there is rarely a clear cut solution to any problem or situation. Rather, your position is to keep all the significant players at the table and in dialogue in order to reach the best possible policy, procedure, or statement. Thus, your challenge is to stay current on many issues related to your business as well as HR and the many cultures we operate in.
What would you do to keep current on vital information for a multinational company that is either expanding or contracting? Develop a strategy for you and your human resource colleagues to stay current. Formulate your response as if you were the HR Director of a large multinational company. Give ample thought to what your role as the company's top HR person might be; how your time should be divided and how you might best use the talents of subordinates.
