Recently I went through an Article in HBR ( Harvard Business Review) which discussed about the value created by HR. In my career in HR what I have realized is that the value created by HR is not seen and at the same time is hard to quantify. However the key towards true value addition in HR is connected with possessing an overall understanding of the business.
HR professionals should be well rounded individuals who have a good idea about business strategy, Finance, Marketing and Operations. Agreeing with article HR value addition does not come through the traditional HR functions such as the payroll but through creation of a effective structure, performance measurements, alignment of the capabilities of employees with the market requirement since at the end of the day people make things happen and not machines.
