People & Culture

Supporting the strategic transformation of the traditional HR function to an integrated people and culture team

Continually evolving and adapting, the meaning and function of the traditional HR profession has changed. Traditional, damaging HR policies and procedures should be rejected and replaced with more restorative-focused models. A transformation to ‘People & Culture’ better defines the strategic role of this function within your organization.

Over recent years, the HR function has been one of the most transformed of all organizational functions. Traditional HR policies and orthodoxies have been regularly challenged, and heavily debated.

With pressures such as low employee engagement, rising inequality and the threats posed by climate and economic emergency, HR in its traditional sense is under threat.

To adapt to these changes and pressures, HR needs to evolve into an overarching People and Culture Function and become one of the most strategic functions across the entire organization. To be successful, the function should be seen as an impartial role, operating across 4 broad pillars:

  • People
  • Culture
  • Justice
  • Strategy

“By owning and communicating culture, ensuring that it is embedded yet constantly evolving and by acting as the intermediary that aligns those at the top with those lower down the chain, HR can effect significant change at every level and enable the delivery of results that empower and engage the entire organization.”

The People and Culture Strategy is probably one of the most important documents in the modern organization. It sets the tone for the kind of organization that you want to be and it ensures that your vision and core values are articulated clearly. Your values then act as a golden thread upon which every other part of your organization can function and succeed.
