Educating The Workforce
For HR reps, one of their main tasks is defining what the organization considers proper workplace mentality and behavior. To impact culture, HR reps must work with company executives to improve performance, both for the organization and for the individual. Training programs can be designed to help employees to think, act and behave a certain way, one that is desired by the corporate culture. For example, an HR rep can promote a culture focused on teamwork and collaboration by establishing team-based reward programs or training programs designed to improve teamwork skills of individual employees. As companies also become more global, HR reps can facilitate education on social technology and collaborative tools to better work across different cultures, geographies and time zones.
