Treating individuals as energy sources is the key to success, observes Declan O’Sullivan, director, Kerry Consulting.
Recruitment, training and development, compensation and benefits… Virtually all HR efforts are aimed at increasing the energy output of the people in the organisation and hence the organisation itself.
In summary, every organisation’s success or failure is influenced by its aggregate energy output. HR is the function which most directly influences the organisation’s potential energy and actual energy. Put another way, HR, perhaps more than any other function, is the key to an organisation’s success or failure.
