In our knowledge economy era, we increasingly note that people- and not just other financial and physical resources- make the difference towards the success or failure of organizations. That’s why you will find that “the human capital element” is always in the heart of your discussions and work with 4D.
TWO THINGS WE ALWAYS LOOK AT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT HR STRATEGY
Firstly, we believe that developing great people always starts with selecting the right ones. If you are a world’s class coach of a good football team, you will be much more likely to succeed and win games with them than if you had a mediocre team.
Secondly, an organization needs to make sure that its vision and strategy are cascaded down throughout the whole organizations. The goal is that everyone in the organization must understand how their work contribute to achieving the overall strategic objectives. Communication, behaviors, and practices of leaders and managers across the organization play an important role in creating and making the vision meaningful to everyone around them.
CUSTOMIZED LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
In association with reputable partners and senior consultants, 4D has built an extensive library of learning and development programs in addition to numerous surveys and assessment tools that allow us to customize and deliver the right in-house programs and workshops. By identifying the gaps between your business current and future needs on one hand and the current skills, knowledge, and abilities of your people on the other hand, you will be just sure that the learning & development investment you make is directly linked to critical gaps that need to be filled for better strategy execution. During tough economic times like we see today, you can’t afford having the learning and development programs being just “nice to have” or being only a way to please your employees off-the-job.
On the other hand, cutting the budget of learning and development simply as a mean of cost reduction, can show quick gains on your balance sheet. However, it is also a guarantee of disastrous consequences in the medium and long-term. People, like any other resources, can get obsolete and deteriorate in value if you don’t the maintenance and update they need in order to become and remain productive.
