Another essential enabler for the HRBP to succeed and play the pivotal role, is its relation- ship with the Centre of Excellence, HR service delivery organization, and the overall HR overarching framework.

Increasingly, India is witnessing HRBP occupying key positions at the senior most levels and in some cases as members of the Board of Directors.This becomes possible only when HRBP deeply understands the business, including its external environment, and hence be a trusted advisor and influencer, be it strategic or operational. HRBPs must define, prioritize and measure HR’s contribution to business performance, besides reporting and sensitizing business leaders with metrics on people effectiveness. Finally, communication plays a pivotal role in the way the HRBP tells the story. “I lead, I create, I analyze”could be the theme of communicating the HRBP value.

HRBP - ACATALYST FORSUCCESS INSOCIALORGANIZATIONS Sony Thomas is a consultant, trainer, speaker and coach who is driven by philosophy of celebrating the journey of life and not its destination. Sony is purpose driven in advocating strategic human resources as a critical success factor for an organization. He continues to be instrumental in building awareness and creating a niche for human resources management especially in social organizations.

Here are the experiences of overcoming two challenges as a HRBP in a social organization.

Meaning of Social Mission The driving force in a social organization is not profit making but the ‘social mission’. Ironically the meaning of ‘social mission’depends on every individual’s worldview, values and beliefs. For the HRBP in such a situation it is imperative, to break down the traditional silos, to achieve greater HR collaboration for people focussed decision making and be strategic in aligning to the meaning of ‘social mission’among ‘people of impact’. Access to Leadership Face-time with leaders is integral to HR business partnering for developing HR strategies that are aligned with the vision of the social organization. This obvious link has to be deliberately cultivated and nurtured in these organizations, where elected members from a community or a group form the management, by staying abreast with the political landscape, non aligned to specific interest groups, and committed to strategic partnerships. Tread cautiously as the good intent of management to integrate HRBP seldom happens at a pace equal to their tenure. Thus, management change compromises the strategic relationship with HR, sometimes to the extent of zero face time. In conclusion, for HR business partnership to act as a catalyst for success in social organizations, creating and sustaining a shift in the attitude of their managements towards contemporary tools of human resource management should be at the heart of partnership.

ABOUT ATYAASAA Atyaasaa Consulting Private Limited is a leading Human Resource Training & Consulting Organization partnering with some of the best brands in the country and overseas. Atyaasaa has been a catalyst and a contributor in their quest for people development and business excellence. The core differentiator of Atyaasaa process is continual innovation, unique customization and use of state of the art technology tools. These are implemented through ethical and experienced operations and human resource facilitators having contribution as their core value. However, in many social organizations HRM is only debuting. The inhibition of social organization towards HRM is commonly mooted by the restructuring cost with longer incubation period for return on investment (ROI). This sentiment is further rationalized by the feeling that ‘they are wasting their limited monetary resources by immediately not serving their ‘social vision’. This limiting and conservative belief prevents the social organizations from benefitting through HR partnership that will ultimately result in higher impact on their respective social missions. Human Resources Management (HRM) is continually evolving to integrate the diversity of human potential for leveraging business success, consequently corporate India now recognizes HR as a ‘critical to success’Business Partner.
