More Bold Thinking: HR\'s 5 Most Important Roles in Talent Management

According to experienced HR professional and consultant Cathy Missildine-Martin, now is a wonderful time to be in HR.

Why would that be, exactly?

Cathy Missildine-Martin (@cathymartin), SPHR and co-founder of Intellectual Capital Consulting, believes that HR practitioners have a huge opportunity to be "HR rock stars".

(And, after all who doesn't want to be called a rock star?)

In this case, the rock-star label might not come with a full-spread feature in Rolling Stone or the multi-million-dollar recording contract, but it does put HR under the spotlight for different reasons.

In Halogen's latest HR's BOLD Thinkers video series, Cathy explains how HR is entering an exciting new phase: business-driven HR.

In this new phase, you as an HR professional become a business person first and an HR person second. You become the keeper of the organization's intellectual capital, affecting change, affecting the bottom line, and affecting business outcomes.

Watch a quick introduction to Cathy's 5-part video series:

Being an HR Rock Star is about Creating Excellence

According to Cathy, HR as a profession is uniquely positioned to play 5 key roles in terms of translating business strategy into workforce needs and linking people with profits. However, HR's success with this new phase comes with creating excellence in each of these roles.

In this 5-part video series Cathy will demonstrate how HR can make a significant and tangible contribution to a company's results and success. Watch and listen as Cathy shares her insights into the 5 critical roles HR professionals need to play in their organizations.
