The People Professions – HR & OD

Human Resources (HR) and Organisational Development (OD) professionals are critical to the Healthcare sector and play a unique professional role, whatever the size of organisation they work in.

Human resources (HR) make sure that colleagues both on the frontline and behind the scenes are fully supported and able to do their jobs.

Organisation development specialists play a critical role in working with line leaders and people practitioners to develop the organisation to achieve its goals. These specialists have expertise in navigating complexity to unpick what the organisation is trying to achieve; diagnose underlying issues, challenges, opportunities; and to select the best approaches to develop the organisation moving forward.
