If you don’t understand the business you have no credibility. If we see HR as separate then we don’t have a future.” Wayne Cartensen, Head of Service Delivery, PEO People: “HR should be as accountable as the CEO.” – On changing HR skill sets:Olivia Cooper, Group HR Director, AEA Technology Plc: “In our organisation you don’t have to come from an HR background. Our HR partners usually come from operations then learn about HR. It’s about attitude but also ability – I don’t believe everyone has the ability to understand the bottom line.”Angela O’Connor, director of HR, CPS: “We need to speak 20 different languages. To the FD, you need to talk in the language of the bottom line. You need to understand what keeps the CEO awake at night. You need to acquire the skill of being able to talk to anyone at any level. HR people are often appalling at communicating. It is a skill set we’ve missed.” Derek Manuel, director of global HR at Save the Children: “I came into HR from business. There are many advantages to coming up through business. Otherwise you can struggle to understand ROI.”– On HR’s image problem: Gillian Hibberd, HR Director, Hertfordshire County Council: “You’ve got to be self aware about how people view you otherwise you can’t change the HR function.”Angela O’Connor, director of HR, CPS: “HR has nothing to apologise for as long as we are good at what we do.”Further reading about HR transformationShared visionIn the first of a three-part series on how to implement a successful e-HR project, our panel of experts explain the importance of developing a shared vision.  www.personneltoday.com/22988.article Secure the stakeholder’s commitmentIn part two of our series on e-HR transformation, we look at how to gain stakeholder engagement. www.personneltoday.com/23098.article Realising the benefitsIn our third and final look at e-HR transformation, we look at how to realise the project benefits. www.personneltoday.com23181.article Special offer for membersHR Directors Club members are entitled to 20% off the price of Transforming HR by Martin Reddington.

The event, organised and hosted by the HR Directors Club and HR consultancy Arinso, heard members tackle a variety of issues.HR transformation feedbackOn 19 May members of the HR Directors Club met at London’s Groucho Club to share experiences and points of view on HR transformation. HR directors from major organisations in the public and private sectors heard informal case studies, briefs on the latest research and discussed key issues. Numbers were limited to make the event as interactive as possible. The event was free to members and put together in partnership with Arinso. Delegates were later able to network over drinks and canapes. This is what was said: – On HR transformation:Gillian Hibberd, HR Director, Hertfordshire County Council: “I don’t think we should be defensive about it. It doesn’t mean the end of HR. We are driving and developing ourselves. There’s nothing scary about developing within a role.”Martin Reddington, author of Transforming HR: “You need to ask yourself: What role does business need the HR function to play when moving forward?”Wayne Cartensen, Head of Service Delivery, PEO People: “What will you replace HR with if you remove it altogether?”Angela O’Connor, director of HR, CPS: “Stop dumb procurement. Only outsource good HR services. Otherwise you won’t be able to understand the costs involved and effectively work with the partner to improve value. Don’t be scared to negotiate better with procurement.”Martin Reddington, author of Transforming HR: “The problem is that many organisations don’t necessarily have a shared vision at the beginning of a project and if you don’t it becomes a shambles. It is far better to develop a shared vision as part of your business case planning than by way of accident, or when cost pressures force the debate.”Olivia Cooper, Group HR Director, AEA Technology Plc: “I convinced the board that our reactive model was not right and secured funding to change the model to consulting. You need to say: these are the cost savings you will achieve. Outline clear ways it can happen with hard and fast evidence of how it can change.”Angela O’Connor, director of HR, CPS: “Never ask: what do you want from us? Look at what is getting in the way. See where you can add value. It’s powerful to go to managers to say this is where it is failing and it gives you credibility when you go back to them and things have changed.” Mary Fitzgerald, HR Director, The Hotgroup: “I found selling the business case relatively easy.” – On HR strategy: Wayne Cartensen, Head of Service Delivery, PEO People: “HR strategy needs to be at board level. HR is not going anywhere otherwise. If the HR Director is both the owner and supporter of the strategy then there is a problem.” Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today.

  • What She Does: Brianna Butler will keep shooting 3s for Syracuse after disappointing season

    first_imgComing off the court after any given game, Brianna Butler doesn’t know how many shots she took. She doesn’t know how many baskets she made either — even after several record-setting performances.What she does know, though, is her number of misses. Each one seared into the back of her mind creating a running tally. Each one a blemish that she feels she has to make up for by creating a turnover or grabbing the next rebound.It’s always frustrating. I’m kind of a perfectionist so when I don’t see the ball in the net I kind of get bummed out.Brianna ButlerThree-hundred-fifty times last season, Butler had something to remember. Her 30 and 28.2 percent shooting percentages from the floor and 3-point land, respectively, were the worst in her career. They overshadowed a season in which she reached 1,000 points and broke SU’s all-time record for three pointers.With Brittney Sykes out for the majority of the year, Butler had to the shoulder much of the scoring load. Opponents adapted to her breakout season a year earlier, chasing her off the 3-point line with multiple defenders.Heading into her senior season, Butler says she’s ready to shed the struggles for last year and solidify her legacy as what head coach Quentin Hillsman calls the “best shooter” in Syracuse history.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text,“She’s going to shoot 300 3s this year,” Hillsman said. “She’s going to make over 100 3s this year. That’s just what she does.”At William Penn Charter (Pennsylvania) School, Butler focused on repetition and perfected her jump shot so that there was little variation in her shooting off the dribble or on a step back 3-pointer, former Penn Charter head coach Diana Caramanico said.A silent assassin, as Caramanico describes her, Butler would brandish a slight twinkle in her eye with each big shot made.The 5-foot-11 guard started all 32 games her freshman season at SU, but it was the next year that she came into her own. Two hundred ninety-two threes rained down from Butler’s hands. One hundred of them went in — eclipsing the previous single season school record by nearly 30.,But the notoriety came at a cost. After the standout season, defenders covered Butler tighter around the 3-point line for her junior year. Instead of one defender, it was two, or sometimes three running at her with their hands in the air, yelling “shooter.”The previous year’s leading scorer, Sykes, wasn’t there to draw attention away from Butler and the pressure led to more misses than anyone on the team.Assistant coach Vonn Read looked at plays run for legendary NBA shooters Ray Allen and Reggie Miller to draw inspiration from to get Butler open. But 35 minutes on the floor each game, many of them spent running around screens, was taxing.I wasn’t really satisfied with how I finished the year. I didn’t think I did poorly but I didn’t think I did the best of my capability.Brianna ButlerFor the first time in her career, Butler spent this summer in Syracuse, in part, to work in the gym and weight room. She focused on conditioning, being able to shoot when she’s tired and shooting with defenders in her face. At home, gym time is hard to come by, her mother said.Already, in practice, forward Taylor Ford has noticed a quicker release on Butler’s shots. Ford will think she has Butler guarded, but then she’ll shoot before Ford even realizes she’s open.This year’s squad has more depth, Hillsman said, which will allow Butler more time on the bench to rest her legs, allowing for her to make 10-12 more 3s.If not, her conditioning has gone from “pretty good” to the next level, Read said.“(She’s) saying, ‘You know what? You can work me all day, but just like a Ray Allen or a Reggie Miller, we’re going to be in the type of shape that we need to be in to be able to make shots,’” Read said.Read said he thinks Butler will be an All-Atlantic Coast Conference player. She has a shot at cracking the top 10 in all-time scoring for SU and taking the crown for 3s made in a career, regardless if she even knows how many she’s made.“You come in here as a shooter and you leave as the best shooter,” Hillsman said. “There’s not getting better than that.” Comments Published on November 12, 2015 at 8:08 am Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus,Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.last_img read more
