Another one on the "essence of HR":

The key question for HR is that "does it itself look as a 'cost
centre' ?" If yes then its no wonder that such a mindset is common
between business leaders also

The question is not that "should HR make revenue" for the
organization , but "how can HR add value to the organization?" ,
because only when HR adds value to the business will others and HR
itself stop seeing itself as a "cost centre" and start seeing itself
as an "investment centre" ...

Only then can the HR function realise its true potential.

And any business culture that equalises only rupee revenue with
value will remain only transactional in nature and very short term
