Al Gore’s Speech about HR --- 2nd Day at the SHRM Conference (Part I)

Al Gore was today’s keynote speaker (June 28). He discussed the crucial role of Human Resource in today’s business world because HR can help leaders:

1. Deal with the emerging diverse workforce issue that challenges organizations.
2. Provides cutting-edge, continuous education and career development opportunities --- the changing needs of the workforce require constant updates of employee skills and competencies.
3. Prepare for the historic movement of the “Internet Evolution” --- the ways people communicate with each other are quite different today because of the Internet.
4. Work on organizational development.
5. Motivate and engage employees and deal with compensations and evaluations.
6. Develop a sustainable capitalist system --- companies should optimize the long-term return of the business, yet many CFO or CEO focuses on the short-term earnings on the balance sheet.

Indeed, HR is facing many challenges in today’s business, but challenges are embedded with opportunities. Recruitment, retention, and engagement are critical in helping business increase productivity and creativity. Do you agree?
