Making your HR investment decisions informed by factors such as your business environment, level of organisational maturity, and industry issues can turn your HR services into a source of competitive advantage. But little practical advice exists on how to build a strategic HR function that is fit for your organisation's needs, both today and in the future.

The starting point is understanding where you are right now, and where you need to be.

Korn Ferry designed a diagnostic guide to help you do just this.

The HR blueprint helps you identify the current and desired position for your organisation across eight key HR practice areas:

  1. Attraction, recruitment, and retention;
  2. Resourcing and workforce planning;
  3. Performance management and reward;
  4. Learning and development;
  5. Talent management;
  6. Employee relations, communications, and engagement;
  7. Managing change; and
  8. Managing employee data.

For each practice area, use the descriptions to assess where you are currently, and where you need to be. This is a great exercise in which to involve the whole team, so you get the full picture. You can then use this blueprint as the basis for your plan.
