In today's context, HR must served as a value-added strategic partner in the formulation of the Company’s strategies. HR is directly responsible in implementing those strategies through "attract", "develop", "reward", "retain", and "separate" cycle of HR activities. We are "sitting" at the table.
HR plays a role in environmental scanning i.e. identifying and analyzing external opportunities and threats that may be crucial to the Company’s success. HR is to supply competitive intelligence that may be useful in the strategic planning process - again SWOT&C is relevant here.
