I just read an article on SHRM's home page today - "HR's New Role: Supporting Organizational Growth". That's new? I have always viewed workforce planning and aligning recruiting strategies with company objectives as part of my role. Are there really so many people out there that don't know that?

Maybe it's because I'm a generalist and a bit of a control freak. I just assume that as an HR professional, I should know what's going on in my company (or my clients') and anticipate it's needs. Good customer service makes me look good too, right?

Sometimes I'm really shocked that there are so many silos in the HR profession. There are recruiters, organizational developers, career developers, trainers, and strategic planners for the HR departments in most companies. I view these all as part of a larger professional group called "HR".

When I see an article like the one today, I have to wonder how many of my peers feel like they're being treated like they're stupid and oblivious? Are we really that unaware as a group when it comes to our role in workforce planning? Or do these authors just need to create a compelling article?
