Siloed functions are so last century – but have we really let go and learnt to collaborate in a multi-disciplinary way?

Kyle Lagunas has seen best of breed companies do just that. If a mindset of thinking about current and future employees the way Marketing thinks about the external customer pervades, many principles and actions can translate from Marketing to HR.

Similarly, HR can and should be asking the question of what can be learned from IT’s approach to project management and technology enablement? Or from Finance’s approach to business analytics, measurement and forecasting?

Business savvy HR professionals are thinking, learning and acting beyond the borders of traditional HR practice. And earning respect, gaining insights and adding a new level of value to business.
