HRM: Strategic Makeover
An organization’s need for a thoughtful gatekeeper is more pressing than its need for a wonderful strategy. Well, the gatekeeper has always been there, armed with the responsibility of protecting the interest of the organization: to selectively let human beings in; to aid their professional growth; to manage their conflicts; and so on.
In some way, the gatekeeper is the binding force that holds the organization together. That gatekeeper, the emotional climate regulator, is the Human Resource Department.
While the gatekeeper should ideally condition any strategy implementation, it is not usually the norm in organizations. As a result, there isn’t a single umbrella sheltering all the employees, resulting in a few experiencing a different climate within the same organization. Such a situation is a gentle hint of an impending trouble. That trouble could very well be low employee morale- a perfect recipe for lower profitability.
From our research and experiences, we have coded few statistical and qualitative measures to evaluate the emotional health of an organization. Applicable equally to all employees, the code gives us a reasonably strong indication of the deviations from the expected.
It is this deviation that we narrow through customized mentoring, incentive restructuring, workload balancing, et cetera, et cetera. Further, we incorporate the process of Design Thinking with the intention of empowering the gatekeeper in narrowing the deviation from the expected sustainably.
