Employee Relations is an act of understanding Management-Employee needs and provide directions to achieve optimum productivity with high emotional connection.-

Changing Role of the Management

In the current competitive scenario it has become imperative that Organizations provide a Clear Vision, Mission and Goals to its employees. In addition to that most of the management teams choose to normalize the employee performance and assign a competitive positioning for employees among each other. This has pushed the management teams to practice benchmarking of People Policies and Practices with their key competitors. Management teams constantly invest in technology today to provide standardized experience in both product and employee services.

Changing Role of an Employee

It is believed for years that every individual as an employee has a higher influence on their own growth and well being in their professional career. Today employees are expected to become specialist in -Management of Self- to differentiate themselves from other employees. In such a scenario the onus is shifted to the employee to understand and utilize the resources and platforms made available to them and influence their own well being and growth.

Expectations range from understanding and application of skills and knowledge to the job, Analyzing and Creating Opportunities, focus on the -Means to the End- and Continue to deliver results as expected. The time has come where employers expect more employees to conduct themselves as -Knowledge Workers- and this is a challenge that individuals have to live with.

Changing Role of the Supervisors and Managers

When the bar is raised for the employees than ever before to deliver and sustain professional growth, the supervisors and managers get a multiplier to their previous responsibilities.

Not only they are supposed to meet all the expectations as an employee themselves but play a pivotal role in balancing between the management and their team members. The traditional supervisor is gone; this is the age of a business manager.

As business managers, all supervisors are expected to manage their portfolios end to end as any CEO. Whether they belong to line or staff function all are accountable for Productivity and Value Creation of their units.

Business Managers are expected to be skilled People Managers.

Leader, the one who knows the roles and responsibilities, delegates, leads from the front and stands up for the team.
Mentor, the one who clarifies the right and the wrong, differentiates success and failure, relates it to an individual and guides based on experience and knowledge.

Team Member, the one who can empathize with the team, identifies the strengths and understands possible synergies.

Counselor, the one who is flexible and approachable, patient listener, identify with the problems, help team members solve their own problems.
And all these are required today in addition to the undisputed focus on the bottom line.

Changing Role of the HR Relationship Managers

The role of a HR Relationship Manager today has transformed. Apart from being an accomplished HR Generalist the Relationship Managers are expected to be Subject Matter Experts in -Human Relationship and Expectation Management-. This initiates the need for skill upgrading in the field of Human Behavior Management among the existing HR Generalists.

The new expectations from this set of professionals today is to maintain -Advocacy- to all managers with their people management responsibilities (As a behavioral consultant) and -Mediate- to sustain the balance between the expectations of both the management and employees.

These dimensions are not new to field of managing employee relations as behavioral theorists preached about it for years now. What is new today is that the successful portrayal these dimensions by all stakeholders will differentiate success and failure among organizations in the future..
