Great HR doesn’t happen by accident. It is a journey, a work in progress, and is always evolving. At the base of every successful HR function are the philosophical building blocks that support its work and that make up the bedrock of a great organization. A healthy HR function is an essential component of a healthy and thriving workplace.
In this interview with Joey Price of Jumpstart HR, SHRM CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr. talks about how HR must continue to grow in its role as strategic partner and the epicenter of where workplace culture is fostered. This is especially true if HR is to thrive as a career path for today’s generation.

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what it means to be a strategic HR partner, leader and influencer. I’m a department of one, and I strongly believe that the key to success is investing in relationships. The combination of being trustworthy and invested, along with really knowing your stuff, makes you both a subject matter expert and also a partner that folks in your organization will want in their corner.
Does the workplace have a love/hate relationship with HR?
It’s a profession with the best intentions and the worst stereotypes. It’s often misunderstood. HR is responsible for every aspect of an organization’s most valuable asset—its workforce—and the pressure is always on. In their efforts to be credible, competent and compliant, human resource professionals can sometimes come across as being very inhuman.
It’s that time of year where we typically think of witches, candy and what we’re going to use to spike the Halloween punch. This year, it seems to be more about the widespread scary clown sightings. That said, I’m still a fan of watching scary movies- the cheesier, the better.
