The strategic relevance of HR 

HR must become the driving force in business transformation

Human Resources is increasingly playing a key role in the business transformation of innovative companies and is on the top agenda of corporate strategy and thus of the CEO. Corporate success has always been shaped by first-class employees and a high-performance culture - so far so good. What's new is that strategic decisions often trigger comprehensive business transformations at both the structural and cultural levels, with fundamental changes that deeply impact culture, DNA, and leadership and collaboration models. In order for HR to drive these deep business transformations, a "new type" of Chief HR Officer (CHRO) is required. Accordingly, the "next generation" CHRO not only claims a place in the management team in order to be able to participate in the transformation process, but also knows the business first-hand. Leadership and business responsibility in different areas and regions of a company are indispensable prerequisites for getting on a level playing field with the business areas in the organization and, of course, being involved in important strategy decisions. This means that he knows his role in the business transformation and aligns his HR organization in such a way that it can create real added value in the process. Because he knows the requirements of the future work force, he also takes a bold and strategic approach to the digitization of his area in order to attract the talents of tomorrow. Accordingly, we have tailored our consulting offering to the needs of the new CHRO.

"With his HR expertise, his pragmatism and know-how on HR trend topics, Mr. Baier convinces me and my whole team again and again. Thanks to his support, we were able to achieve successes in a very short time, which still have a lasting effect on our organisation today and have brought our HR department a long way forward. From the development of the HR strategy to the implementation of measures and process optimization. The cooperation is always absolutely professional and trusting."

"My first experience with the 4C GROUP was in 2014 in the context of the 'NextGeneration HR' reorganisation. Both Dr. Mauterer and Mr. Baier impressed me with their relevant experience, expertise, methodology and personal commitment. On the basis of this positive experience, I recruited Dr. Mauterer to work in the DIN standards committee 'Human Resources Management', where he is still an internationally sought-after expert and partner at DIN/ISO level with a current focus on 'Human Capital Reporting' (ISO30414). Dr. Mauterer has played a major role in shaping the core elements of this standard and has syndicated them in international committees."

Ready to use HR Reports

The Covid-19 crisis continues to have a strong impact on society and the economy and presents us with unprecedented challenges every day. After the first quick-fix measures, it has become clear that what is needed now is above all planned and considered action. Especially the human resources department can currently prove that it contributes more than ever to the survival of their company: HR must actively support management by providing solutions to reduce costs, secure liquidity or make necessary adjustments to organizational structures and work processes.

To do this, HR decision-makers now need answers to questions about capacities, personnel costs and time accounts. In order to be able to answer such questions in a management under uncertainty in a targeted manner, a data-based basis is the decisive success factor. In almost every company the corresponding data is available, but in different systems and often a clear and concise preparation in form of a comprehensive HR reporting is missing.

We are happy to explain our structured approach in a personal exchange - an overview of our 4C HR Reporting solution including screenshots and approach can be found in our 2-Pager.
