HR Departments - Surviving in Times of Crisis - Lets apply Sun Tzu Principles

Dear HR , Training and Learning & Development Heads,

Over the weekend I was indulged in my book to understand the principles of Sun Tzu for TLMM.  I came aross a section for the HR Departments. 
Here is a snap shot of what I read.  Hope you can learn & apply back for your People.

Surviving in Times of Crisis
·   Is it the end?  Life will still has to.
·   The Chinese word for ‘crisis’ is made up of two characters, ‘danger’ and ‘opportunity’.
·   Throughout this book, the message is very clear and consistent: urging you to be visionary, virtuous and caring towards your employees, customers, suppliers, etc.
HRM: Today and in The Future
·   One, who foresees victory before a battle, will most probably win.
·   One, who predicts not much of a chance of winning before the fight, will most probably not win.
·   Some companies, they are serious enough to include HR managers in their top management team.
·   Some HR manager has even made it to the board of directors.
·   HR manager no longer regarded as the company’s welfare officer or ‘clean-up-the-mess’ boy.
·   The modern-day HR manager is expected to be much more open-minded and strategic in his thinking.
·   To be effective in his job, he must have excellent human skills, e.g. interpersonal relationships and communications.
·   Today’s HR managers cannot divorced from the reality of coexistence.
·   In this respect, a HR manager can learn much from Sun Tzu who observes.
·   If you have a really good HR manager, he can save a lot of money for your corporation, often from the reduction of indirect costs.
The Moral Law
·   In time crisis, the mission statement often serves as an ‘anchor’ to provide strategic direction for the company.
·   Total accord with their ruler, so that they will follow him in life and death without fear for their lives and undaunted by any peril.
·   We are responsible to our employees- Employees must feel free to make suggestions and complaints.
·   Here, be prepared to work hard to achieve our goals… if anyone is willing to chip in for the company, then I’m afraid he is not for us.
·   It could be a most powerful weapon to harness the potential of your people and bring focus to the desired direction.
Until our next learning, lets SERVE people today.
