Should a HRM Organization be Different for Certain Industries or Sectors?
Supriya Kummamuru, Management Consultant, India

Is Human Resource Management industry agnostic? In other words, should a HR organization be designed differently for different industries or domains?
For example,
Should the HR design for an IT Services Organization be distinct?

HR Organization Design Varies from one Sector to Another
David Wilson, Manager, Canada
Hi Supriya: There is no one design, nor is there a perfect design. HR organizations will vary from one sector to another, and even within the same sector!
In theory, HR organizations should have similar core functions, such as Labour or Employee Relations, Compensation, Classification (i.e. job Evaluation), Recruitment, Pension/Benefits, Organization/Employee Development (i.e. learning Management), HRIS (including Analytics), Employee Services, etc. However, some of these services could be outsourced and other services, such as Payroll, Cafeterias, and Security could be added.
Take a look at other 12Manage topics in the HR Management forum and you will find added information on HR roles, core functions, etc., that may be useful. Regards.

HR and Organization Design
TGourishankar, Strategy Consultant, India
HR should definitely know the organization design. Otherwise it will be transactional. For HR to be more strategic and a business partner HR should lead the organization design.
