“Role of HR as a change agent
Every moment is a subject of change. We are witnessing the rapid pace of change in everyday life, everything that surrounds us. First, we could mention the globalization, the technological innovations and inventions, brutal market competition, endless clients’ requests… Organizations are subject of change as well, and they have to predict the change, to have a contingency plan, in order to adjust to the new situation. Otherwise, they might not be able to continue their work (Bradford & Bruke, 2005). In these kinds of change, or generally, in every change there is a need for something or someone who will cope fast with the change and will make it less painful for the organization – ‘a change agent’. In times of change, the organization has to maintain the same operating pace and to ensure the future performance, which will be the main challenge for the change agent. The change agent will be expected to (Sims, 2002, pp. 107-108):
• Enable people to work effectively as they plan, implement and experience change
• Improve the employees’ ability to manage successfully the coming change
In this context, the HR function plays a major role, finding its place in the process of adapting the organization to emergency. As Ulrich (1997, p.31) argues ‘The actions of change agents include identifying and framing problems, building relationships of trust, solving problems, and creating and fulfilling action plans’. This author has conducted an extensive and detailed research on this issue. However, one of the main focuses was the description and listing of the requirements and the desired capabilities that effective HR change agent should hold (Ulrich, 1998, pp. 38-41):
• To diagnose problems;
• To build close relationship with the stakeholders and clients;
• To make sure that the employees identify themselves with the organization’s vision;
• To set an agenda with activities, which should be accomplished by the leaders;
• To implement the solutions for the current problems;
• To implement an appropriate strategy into the organization in order to achieve the goals of the change.
Adding the HR change agent function in the job description, the HR professionals add much more value to the organization. Acknowledging the major contribution of the HR professionals towards the organization, they are labeled as ‘business partners’ to the organization. Another author (Caldwell, 2001) emphasizes the HR role as a change agent: ‘At the centre of many HRM approaches to the organizational transformation and culture change is the concept of the personnel or HR professional as change agent… the change agent role has grown in significance and complexity. To partly capture these changes, a new four- fold typology of HR change agent roles is proposed: champions, adapters, consultants and synergists’ (quoted by Turner, 2003, p.20).”
