Their philosophy comes from their belief that employees work for people, not organizations. By addressing the root causes that lead to reduced employee engagement and increased employee turnover, they are able to save the organization time, money and credibility with their employees.
Scott Brown, founder of My HR Business Partner, said “over the years, organizations have thrown money at short term fixes with the hope that the latest fad will engage their workforce. What we have found over the past ten years is that employees can see right through these gimmicks. We have found time and time again that aligning leadership behaviors with the company’s values and objectives, providing employees a venue to voice their concerns and then taking action on these concerns and providing employees an avenue to develop skills that can benefit the organization and the individual for the future, provides a far greater return on investment than simply increasing salaries or throwing a party.”
Scott acknowledges that these solutions are not easy, nor are they immediate. He compares the change management process required to change behaviors and actions to the process of building a bridge. He said “in order to change the long term results of an organization, you must first build a foundation from which to install the pillars of a successful talent and knowledge management process. These initial steps allow you to bridge the gap between leadership intention and results in increasing employee engagement and retention.”
In conclusion, Scott pointed out the focus of My HR Business Partner is to help employers with long term results and strategy. He points towards the impending labor shortage as Baby Boomers leave the workforce along with the potential short term labor shortages that are forecasted to spring up as the economy rebounds, as being the catalysts for employers to take a second look at how to best manage their employee engagement and retention issues.
