New opportunities in strategic HR

So I got into a bit of a rant with HRD Connect about people strategy.
It’s probably not my best argued article but it might be one of my most passionate?
And look, I know many companies are doing this, but not enough. And for many, the ideas around creating value and people based business strategy are still completely new.
So they may be looking after their people reasonably well, sure, but are they thinking about their people as the centre of their strategic success? – doing that makes a lot of difference in my experience.
