CULTURE WORKS – WE KEEP YOU TOGETHER WHEN SOCIAL DISTANCING KEEPS YOU APART!
CULTURE CONNECTIVITY FOR YOUR PURPOSE, PEOPLE AND PROCESSES.
Organizational development might sound like only a business term, but it actually couples well with HR (the two just need some couples therapy…)
Although organizational development and HR can be a successful duo, there are some misconceptions that can be addressed to maintain a balance between the two.
What Is Organizational Development?
AIHR describes the importance of organizational development: “Organizational development is a critical and science-based process that helps organizations build their capacity to change and achieve greater effectiveness by developing, improving, and reinforcing strategies, structures, and processes.”
There is scientific evidence showing that organizational theories can be applied to the workplace and other social groups with human resources. One of the key takeaways from the research that has been performed with organizational development is that it will look different for each unique workplace.
The goals for organizational development will also differ for types of organizations. Growth and development are essential for any organization, but organizational development focuses on the variations between individual growth and team building.
The HR team is a huge part of implementing organizational development.
HR Daily Advisor puts it well: “How much training is on offer and how it is communicated will directly impact whether an organization is viewed as being friendly to employee development. HR is often either directly or indirectly responsible for creating onboarding and training programs, so this is an area where human resource professionals can have an impact.”
Other key factors to be considered when evaluating the organizational development and HR duo are:
- HR policies
- Culture benefits
- Corporate culture
- Employee Pay
