Strengthening strategic HR in the public sector

If people aren’t part of that OD conversation, if the people arc is missing, it becomes all about systems and process delivered by transformation teams. What we need to see is a mustering of HR professionals to start moving into that space. Because if you lose the people in OD you really have got a problem. HR then just becomes about policies and process – and it becomes weaker for it
