CEOs Sit Up, Take Notice, & Incorporate THINK DIFFERENT

Key components of a thorough Strategic HR plan consists of many theories, concepts, and tasks that I have both had the pleasure of implementing in companies I have worked for or consulted with as well as teach in my HR Management courses. Most of these components have been covered over the last two days during the annual SHRM Strategy Conference at the Chicago Fairmont.

The following is a list in no particular order of comments, phrases, and ideas that I heard or reheard that is important for all organizations to sit up, take notice, & incorporate into management philosophy, style and policy in a very strategic way. Without top down support it just won't work. To put it simply THINK DIFFERENT!

-Put People Before Numbers
-Drive Systemic Change
-Encourage Criticism to Spark Innovation
-Engage Employees
-Employees First Customers Second
-Focus on Talent Management
-Create a Marketplace for Talent
-Seek to be an Employer of Choice
-Embrace Social Media
-Encourage Risk Taking
-Improve Collaboration in a Virtual World
-Focus on Developing People

Honestly the list can go on and on. The bottom line is strategic planning is crucial for positive impact in any organization. Consider the "Human" in Human Resources will help you get there!
