SOM- Staffing Organization Maturity!!
SOM- Staffing Organization Maturity, is simply put the maturity of a company or organization as it relates to HR and Staffing. This correlates to the process, procedures, systems, standing and programs used for Staffing and HR.
Example some companies are not ready for social media, some companies are not ready for remote workers, etc. Some still think of HR as a necessary evil rather than a true corporate partner. The more mature a company is with its thinking about HR and staffing the better it will be able to adapt to the changing HR and staffing environment and remain successful. The phrase “adapt or Die” comes in big here.
Now some of this will be a bye product of the corporate culture, some will be a bye product of technology within the company, and some will be a bye product of the skills of the people involved. But in the end a truly mature company will be able to handle it.
The main thing is that the maturity level of the company as it relates to HR and staffing will determine their success now and in the future. The more mature a company is, the more adaptable they will be and as I said above, you either “adapt or die”.
