HR.comÂ, the largest research and Web destination for Senior HR professionals, published a press release on its website (http://www.hr.com) which details findings of a study conducted by Brian Lowenthal, of The Benchmark Partners, LLC. The Benchmark Partners is a human resource benchmarking and consulting firm, with more than 25 years of HR experience.
The study concluded that, ÂThe responsibility to align the companyÂs business strategy with its Human Capital strategy belongs to the Human Resource function.Â
The companies in the study that were able to achieve and sustain the alignment of business strategy to Human Capital strategy saw their Human Resource functions contribute results across five dimensions or HR Effectiveness: Strategic Alignment, HR ROI, HR Operations, HR Technology and Stakeholder Alignment.
The study further showed that when HR was ineffective in two or more of these five dimensions, HR was seen as making no significant or material bottom-line contributions. Additionally, HR was seen as adding little value to organizational performance.
