KARACHI: Human resource departments of several companies in developing economies, including Pakistan operate in isolation, experts said on Thursday.
“HR (department) should be fully integrated (with other departments),” said Leon Menezes, Professor of Practice at the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), speaking at a HR conference.
“The language of (today’s) business is finance and HR does not talk about business,” he added. Integration makes the department more responsible and less bureaucratic and will enable it to play a pro-active role in the development of the business and human resource.

Corporate and Government Organizations - A Brief HR Trainings Photo Story
In business, the rear view mirror is always clear but the windshield is hazy. Human capital Analytics act as windshield to determine the workforce potential for smooth business continuity and growth of enterprise.
Human Capital Analytics present true picture of the human asset in the organization and the financial value it creates for the shareholder, thus mitigating the risk for the investor and increasing prospects of more investment in HR.
Anyone can generate 50 or more metrics but to demonstrate to the business that x percent increase/decrease in y factor corresponds to how much increase/change in business performance and ultimately financial performance takes its toll and effort. Only vital few measurements make the difference.
35% of investment decisions are determined by non financial information. Investors have made it clear that they value intangible assets. It’s up to HR to develop a new measurement system that creates real value for the firm and secures human resources’ legitimate place as a strategic partner.
