HR Corporate Master (A New HR Model)


  • Bashir, Jibran Bashir
  • Afzal, Sara Afzal


Today’s organizations consider human resource management as an all inclusive practice and view it playing vital role in their development. Thus the boundaries of human resource field are expanding, as pointed out by Ulrich & Brockbank (2005) that “HR work does not begin with HR, it begins with thebusiness”. This emerging need of enlargement in Human Resource Roles propels a thirst for more and more research to bring out the exact responsibilities and roles of HR departments as well as HR professionals in the organizations. In line with this highlighted need and on the basis of literature review, the propositions that have been drawn out to emphasize this research are: firstly; HR is likely to act as an Organizational Architect, Secondly; HR aptly provides expertise as a Functional Expert,Thirdly; HR is expected to act as a change Manager, Fourthly; HR likely acts as a knowledge facilitator, Fifthly; HR needs to act like an external master, and sixthly; HR performs its role as an Intrapreneur. Upon proving these propositions through literature, we will suggest a new model in HR, with the name of “HR Corporate Master”, which will explain those roles that HR has to play in order to give success to businesses by its presence.
