Tsunami, earthquakes, uncertainties and turbulence in business are a few common terms which have repeatedly bombarded our ears, struck our minds and made us think twice as to what comes next. As a result of globalization, business today, is no more an internal monopoly of a few to control its survival at will without addressing the needs of all its stake holders. To stand up this challenge, industry has struggled to evolve strategies to remain in existence in business despite tough competition of the global products available anywhere and everywhere. While a few business houses in India have met the challenge by re -alignment and continuous review of their business strategies to face the challenges by learning from their own as well as failures of others, many have simply vanished. The components of global impact on business are multiple, ironically, one most underrated drivers of business, namely HR in the conventional sense has now become more pronounced. The most critical support to any business from survival to excellence is provided by the asset of any organization that is the human capital which also drives businesses through technology. But the competitive edge in business stands only when it is revived with the HR perspective of an organization. The world is dominated by one surety that is the “uncertainty of the future”, which one cannot predict. The lifecycle of the product, return on investment, customers’ hostility emanating from cost and quality with a multiplier effect of the global recession impact the business. So, the alternatives left for the industry is to focus on cutting the cost, outsourcing, downsizing, panic-driven action, diversifying more due to crisis rather then to a well knit plan of a strategic move. The situations looks to be more threatening than assuring and so is the challenge of HR. However, if HR gears up to its potential, it can make the difference in the survival of any business; as well can actually take it to new heights. The slogan may be “Survival of the fittest” but HR can make it “Survival as the fit - test”. Today, the scenario for HR looks somewhat like 20 - 20 cricket challenging the conventional style to innovation. The stakeholders and the shareholders have to manage their own shows as the Government on the other side is bound because of the political factors and restrictive industrial laws. At a time when uncertainties in the business are more visible than ever before, HR assumes the most pivotal role. It takes the lead by shaping HR strategies from conventional to innovative, entrepreneurial attitudes in employees, creating a flexible workforce addressing issues. They are instrumental in ensuring involvement of employees in understanding their role in the business and the customer’s need satisfaction. This calls for the total rethinking in the minds of the HR professionals to play their role not only as crisis managers, but as leaders. They are the ones who anticipate the factors of crisis and address before its inception, in terms of building employee competence in quick decision making. It is important to address the cost of manufacturing and each employee’s commitment in thinking of alternatives in terms of products and services. It is critical that HR professionals must learn to anticipate changes and understand what is necessary to implement it. They must understand business decisions by balancing a range of factors that often conflict with one another. It requires the focus on ISSUE and not the PERSONALITIES. The HR professionals have to have a global mindset with compe tence of understanding business imperatives necessary for organizational strategies with sensitivity.
