Facilitator

Facilitator

The HR professional plays several roles in the business. Different roles may be more or less important depending on the HR and business agenda. It is rare for the HR professional to spend extended periods in one role. Rather they are likely to engage in a particular role to achieve a key objective, therefore flexibility is key. Their overall focus is on achieving the business strategy and goals. They will use their local HR plan and agenda to further this together with any corporate wide strategy initiatives, tailored to their business.

The ability to facilitate a group activity, development session or structured discussion, is a critical one for the HR professional. As facilitator your role is to ensure that the business outcomes of the event are met – whether these are learning objectives, the development of a strategic approach, or particular decision points.  Your role is to keep the group focussed on the outcomes, to stimulate discussion through presenting new viewpoints and challenges, and to ensure participation from all group members.
