A new Michael Page study shows that, far from being a management cliché, people really are an organisation’s most important resource. Recognition of this reality means HR leaders are placing a heightened focus on managing and retaining talent. In doing so, HR is increasing its own value to the business as an operational and strategic partner. According to the Michael Page study, which polled the views of over 2,500 HR leaders worldwide, the current top priorities for HR are: talent management, training & development and talent recruitment. The challenges now facing the HR function include: meeting the demand for workforce expansion, applying KPIs more systematically to monitor company needs, and providing insight and guidance to the board.
