This week for the Festival of Community Directors we celebrate Human Resources week.
The role of HR professionals in these days of digital disruption, technology and globalisation, is to focus on the commercial success of a business by understanding and making sure that the people strategies are aligned closely to where the business is headed.
A good HR department is critical to an employee-oriented, productive workplace in which employees are energised and engaged.
Employee engagement and good people management are key drivers of business success and HR should lead the way through recruitment and talent management, culture and change management processes.
HR is not a supplement to a business - it's the beating heart of the organisation.
Later this year, on May 8, we'll will bring you a dynamic new HR management website that will provide a one-stop spot for all your human resources-related queries.
The website, a partnership between Hesta and GoodJobs, will give you free access to HR policies and processes, templates, guides and tech tools.
You will also be able to post your jobs and apply our newly developed Gender Lens to your advertisements - to help you avoid creating a gender biased job advertisement, and if you're a community worker, you'll be able to find your next great career move.
As we wait for this website to launch, join us in our celebration of the Festival of Community Directors' Human Resources week by checking out the resources listed below.
