Abstract

In this paper, I argue that the quickest means for human resources (HR) and human resource development (HRD) functions to achieve strategic positions in their organizations is to foster their roles as change champions and as providers of people-oriented decision-support. HRD practitioners have been trapped in the midst of an identity crisis as they increasingly have had to relinquish their former roles as trainers. This paper outlines a new way forward for HR/HRD practitioners as they attempt to sort out their new organizational roles and function in contemporary organizations where the outsourcing of HR/HRD functions including employee relations, benefits, training, etc. is quickly becoming the norm.
