HR Strategy for Oil & Gas
9th December 2015
A recent Harvard Business Review had on its cover “Is it time to Blow Up HR”. In the journal it indicated many organisations are questioning the value that HR is contributing to their organisations. It seems that most of these questionable HR organisations spend their time in administrative and compliance related activities or in outdated HR practices from decades past.

capital. They need to be able to predict outcomes and performance of their organizations based on their knowledge of
culture and human capital and its fit with the work of the organisation.
(4) Diagnosing Problems – HR needs to be in a position to pinpoint precisely why an organization might not be performing
well or meeting its goals.
(5) Prescribing actions to add value – HR needs to be prepared to recommend actions that will unlock or create value
through the reallocation of human capital or redesigning and aligning the organizations structures and systems in the
(6) Highlight financial benefits – HR needs to move from being seen as a cost center by the business where the goal is always
cut, cut, cut. Being able to quantify costs and benefits (ROI) turns talent and organisational design choices decisions into
