The modern world of business is changing rapidly in its attempt to gain and maintain a competitive edge. Business is operating in an environment affected by macro environmental factors ranging from Technology to Legislation and Globalization. These factors and many others are causing business to re-evaluate itself, both internally as well as externally. Structures are becoming flatter and decentralization is taking place as organizations attempt to remain competitive, survive and grow.

The result is that excess costs and "fat" is being vigorously trimmed from organizations. The new message is "Add value or cease to exist" The modern HR Practitioner can no longer afford to be a "cost" centre, as organizations will not easily tolerate "cost" centers in their mission to survive and prosper.

How then should HR ensure that it adds value and is not seen as just "another cost centre"?
