The onset of the new millennium witnesses the changing role that HR has come to play inside and outside the organisation. HR holds the key to the success of the organisation. At Zeus Consulting we endeavour to become a business partner for our clients thus leading the clients to meet the competitive challenges ahead. The focus has thus shifted to Strategic Human Resource Management. The Strategic HR role focuses on aligning HR strategies and practices with business strategies. Thus, the capacity of a business to execute the strategies is increased. Translating the business strategies into HR practices helps the business in three ways:
- The business can adapt to change because the time from conception to the execution of the strategy is shortened.
- The business can better meet customer demands because its customer service strategies have been translated into specific policies and practices.
- The business can achieve financial performance through its more effective execution of strategy.
