Two dominant trends are potentially reshaping the role of the HR function in the corporate world. The first relates to the rapid growth of the knowledge economy. In this environment, a committed, appropriately skilled and prudently deployed workforce is critical in order to develop new products and outstrip the competition. Second, many administrative functions that were formerly handled by HR departments, such as payroll and pensions, have now been farmed out to third parties. Indeed, research reveals that more than two-thirds of companies outsource a portion of their HR functions. This report by the Economist Intelligence Unit investigates whether the HR function is forging a close and robust relationship with the CEO. It also explores the nature of these working relationships, how they have been affected by the economic downturn and how they vary across industries and regions.

Even when facing challenging economic times, businesses still need to communicate and rely on technology to connect with customers, partners, suppliers and their own employees. Cutting back on communications spending will have a negative effect in a long downturn.  It will leave any business that does so with fewer options when conditions improve and at a disadvantage compared to competitors that continue to invest.  However, there are 10 steps that can be taken to grow the value and use of communications, while controlling costs.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.
