The Role of HR in Business Process Reengineering (BPR)

We already know BPR is not about IT only. But I'd like to find out what can or should be the role of HRM (Human Resource Management) in effective BPR implementations?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts...

Importance of HRM to Pursue Effective Business Process Reengineering

HRM has a big role in BRP since it cannot be conceived as a department for payroll/administration only:
- HR holds together all vital activities in the organization such as Recruitment, Training, Organizational and Personal Development and therefore everything that has to do with Analysis and Description of Jobs to foresee a structured reengineering (or new positions) taking into consideration what inputs and resources (financial/non financial) the company counts on and this includes close collaboration and communication with IT.
- Also HR is involved in motivation, organizational climate, incentives, etc., to attract new fresh candidates and to transfer the current ones into new ways of working.
- HR must comprehend and propagate that people are the highest most valuable asset of an organization, so it is imperative that they get the best working environment and the best tools to perform in an optimal way.
