Companies 'must employ comprehensive HR efforts to develop new leaders'
The development of top managers will rely on the promotion of a new type of leadership in the workplace, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has revealed.
According to a new report from the organisation, nurturing leaders within a company that can drive growth and promote best practice has become the responsibility of HR departments, with more scrutiny than ever now being placed on this group to provide a positive example to their teams.
As such, HR staff need define good leadership and create systems, processes and policies to encourage these skills, while also ensuring these leadership development frameworks are aligned with core corporate values.
"Today's leaders need to be self aware, have a strong moral compass and understand that their behaviour is key to whether an organisation's values are worth more than a passing reference in the annual report," commented chief executive officer of the CIPD Peter Cheese.
The news follows recent comments from co-authors of Contented Cows Still Give Better Milk Bill Catlette and Richard Hadden, who argued that good leadership can help to get the best out of staff, ensuring businesses are optimising productivity at all times.
