The role of the HR Management dramatically changes. The HR was the service for managers
and the organization. It was designed to take care about the social environment in the organization.
The    increased    competition    on    the    market changed    imperatives    for    Human
Resources dramatically. The strategic role of HR Management in the organization was introduced.
The top management expects HR to take the full responsibility in the area of the people

The strategic role of HR brings a huge shift in the roles and responsibilities of HR. The HR Professionals start sharing goals and objectives with the line management. The HR Professionals are required to lead cross-functional strategic initiatives. HR is required to bring proposals and take actions to make the organization efficient and competitive. The strategic role is in the pro-active approach. The HR Professional has to be a real business entrepreneur.  The  professional  has  to  identify  all  opportunities  for  new  initiatives  and improvements. Today, the organizations are more efficient, but they are not perfect. Each successful HR Professional can identify opportunities for the improvement. Each HR Team has to be centered about employees and the performance of employees.

The HR as the strategic partner defines the key areas for the development of the organization. All initiatives and HR Projects have to aim to the efficient organization, which fully engages employees and attracts talents from the job market. The employees are innovative and ideas are quickly implemented.

The strategic  role  of  HR  Management is  about  predicting  and  forecasting  the  future development. HR has to identify key areas for the development and it has to design proper analysis of threats coming from the market and competitors. HR has to proactively protect the know-how of the organization and it has to protect its potential for the future.

HR has to strategically invest into the learning and development. It has to hugely invest into the leadership development as the new generation of managers is able to beat the competition. HR has to engage employees and it has to run the proper selection of talents from the external sources and internal talent pools.

The strategic role of HR changes the job profiles of HR employees. They are less focused on the service delivery. They are more focused on the delivery of HR solutions. They have to think broadly about the entire organization. They have to be skilled in the planning of activities. They have to skilled in the financial planning. They have to be experts in the change management.

The HR Management becomes strategic. It is not the case of the every organization, but the modern organizations gain the competitive advantage. The modern approaches in Human Resources will spread quickly.
