ABSTRACT
The author offers his opinion on the significance of joining up resourcing and development functions to align human resource (HR) with the goals of the company. He notes that in large organizations an HR professional can go through several levels of management before having responsibility for both areas. He argues that the problem with this is that often each silo has only part of the picture. He asserts that rarely do the teams share sufficient knowledge and agree common standards so that the expertise of one informs the actions of the other.
