What does a Head of HR do
Heads of HR are required in almost all sectors and industries. In this senior role you must embody the businesss culture, being responsible for the wellbeing of the workforce and attracting new talent.
Your responsibilities centre on leading the HR department processes and driving people management strategies. This includes, coaching, mentoring and supporting staff members to identify their individual strengths and development needs, while championing an open, embracing culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) throughout the organisation. You will also ensure that the human resources programs and initiatives are implemented effectively and efficiently.
With the onset of the pandemic in 2020, and to successfully support the vast changes to the way people work, the role of Head of HR evolved dramatically. During this time HR functions made huge adjustments to business strategies, including adapting systems and tools to work from home, changes to priorities, budgets, headcount and the introduction of the furlough scheme.
We may see further developments to this role, as Heads of HR deal with new responsibilities and stark changes to their teams and working culture, for example mass redundancies, or recruiting new staff in line with revised business focus and priorities.
