White papers tackle strategic plans small HR departments
MADISON, Wis. (5/27/08)--Tips for effective strategic planning in the current marketplace and managing a one-person human resources department are provided in two new white papers from the CUNA Councils. Sponsored by the CUNA Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Council, “Strategic Planning: The Finance Department’s Role in Striving for Relevance and Execution” provides a forum for planning consultants and credit union executives to discuss issues involved in effective strategic planning in the current marketplace. The white paper examines common obstacles in the planning process and recommends ways to overcome them as well as the role the finance department should play in preparing, guiding and monitoring the process. Recent guidance from the National Credit Union Administration on the planning process also is included. The second paper, “Working Solo: The challenges of leading a one-person human resources department,” addresses the challenges of managing a single-person human resources department. It discusses how to balance managing the daily workload and contributing to a well-rounded organization by helping address strategic goals. In the CUNA HR/TD Council sponsored paper, eight human resource professionals in one-person departments share their experiences and offer technology, tools and personal tips they use to help balance their workloads. The paper also includes strategies for getting help from co-workers and other departments, and maintaining perspective. The papers are complimentary for CUNA Council members and available for purchase from non-members. For more information, use the resource links.
