Summary and Key Practices and Policies to build Human Capital in a Chemical Company
As the chemical industry faces talent and skill shortages, it is important (and timely) that chemical companies setup required processes, systems and infrastructure to build and strengthen human capital in their organizations. This can be achieved by following initiatives and processes:
- Define talent as a strategic resource
Measure and define overall talent and skill position
- Ascertain business impact of HR investments
- Validate and plan workforce capabilities to execute business plans / strategy
Develop strategies and programs (innovative job profiles, job rotations) to retain and reward high performers
Setup a learning culture in the organization
Ensure safe (remove risks) shop floor operations
Create an engagement model with the workforce to ascertain their suggestions and feedback
