Q&A with Flavia N. Lwanga

On February 22nd, Flavia Lwanga, HR Director at Airtel, presented on how to align business goals with HR strategies. During her presentation, attendees asked several questions about the topic.

Here is what Flavia had to say in response to some of those questions.

Q: What advice do you have for HR professionals looking to align their strategies with their company’s goals?
A: My advice to HR professionals is to start by understanding the company’s goals and objectives. Once they are clear on that, they can then create HR strategies that are tailored to help achieve these goals. It is important to take into account the current trends in the industry and to have an open dialogue with all stakeholders within the organization. Additionally, it is important to be agile and responsive to changes to ensure the success of any HR strategy.

Q: How do HR trends affect business strategy?
A: HR trends have a significant impact on business strategy. For example, the rise of remote working has caused many companies to re-evaluate their existing policies and create new ones that better support remote workers. Similarly, increased diversity and inclusion initiatives have led many organizations to reconsider their recruitment processes and work culture. By understanding the current HR trends, businesses can ensure that their strategies remain relevant and effective in a constantly changing environment.

Q: What steps can businesses take to mitigate any risks associated with HR trends?
A: To mitigate the risks associated with HR trends, businesses should strive to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to making changes. For example, businesses should review their existing policies regularly to ensure they remain up-to-date and compliant with any new regulations or standards. Additionally, it is important to provide adequate training and resources for employees to help them adapt to any changes that may be necessary. Finally, businesses should consider conducting research and surveys to gain insights into how their employees feel about any proposed changes. This can help identify potential issues before they arise and make sure that any changes are implemented successfully.
