I have to point out that I have a very hip and web 2.0 HR business partner. I know, most of you are wondering just how can HR be hip and know anything about social networking. I recently have been working with an HR partner in EMEA focusing on the Systems Engineering organization. That HR partner is Volker Seubert.
The first sign of his social engineering coolness was the fact that he was able to update a wiki page about our orgnization that we have inside of Sun. We call it CEpedia, as in Customer Engineering-pedia. Not that updating a wiki is a big deal, but on the other hand I don't see a lot of the support functions trying to find ways to contribute via web 2.0 mechanisms. Score 1 for Volker.
And as Volker says in his first blog, we are in the process of refactoring our HR processes and organization. It has not been easy, but if the payoff is having someone like Volker focus on our business, then it is all worth it. In fact, it is great to have a HR partner that is really trying to support and understand the orgs direction and strategy and not just take on the catbert role. Score another for a hat trick!
