A very informative article indeed.

I truly concur to the article above, that for the overall growth and high performing organisations, the role of HR holds one of the core places. HR's knowledge and ability to bring out the best in its people and thus create a culture wherein the people actually would love to work can definitely help scale heights.

Good insight by the Author, but I would like to add to this.

Changing mindset to acknowledge HR Functions as Business Operation Functions would certainly make a difference, Time has gone when HR was back seat Function. It has now become Business Strategy Function.
