The past several years have seen an evolution of the HR function within organizations from an administrative unit to more of a strategic partner. Strategic management in human resources involves a future-oriented process of developing and implementing HR programs that address and solve business problems and directly contribute to major long-term agency objectives. These trends are compelling the need for HR professionals to redefine themselves and learn to take on the role as a strategic business partner who is working collaboratively with both management and employees.
