HR structures in the social era
Someone asked me this question on Quora:
How do you see HR Departments changing their stucture in response to our new social world?
Here's what I answered:
Personally I see a lot of resistance on the part of the HR community to embrace social technologies. The thought that employees internally can form communities and engage with each other - or external prospective do the same - is scary for them.
I think the traditional structuring of HR (on the lines of expertise - Recruitment, Business Partner, Learning & Development, HRIS, Compensation & Benefits) is flawed. I have thoughts which I have written here
After such structuring embracing Social would make more meaning for HR to become social
