Make a Business Case for an HR Initiative

Key Points

  • An HR initiative is a program or set of related actions created and implemented by Human Resources. Such initiatives are typically aimed at solving a business problem, addressing a business need or seizing an opportunity to increase revenues or decrease expenses.
  • As a strategic partner, HR has a tremendous opportunity to create initiatives that ensure business success and have a significant impact on the organization's financial performance, while focusing on the organization's most valuable asset - its employees.
  • It is important to know what resources are required to implement and manage HR's strategic initiatives. Securing approval for those resources requires making a business case that demonstrates the positive results the initiative will create for the organization.
