STRONG HUMAN RESOURCE POLICIES ARE CRITICAL TO BUILDING AN ENGAGED WORKFORCE
Strong human resources policies and capable, qualified management are essential for all HMK-suppliers to be compliant with the law and our Code Leadership Standards. We have developed guidance and tools they can use to improve Human Resources Management (HRM) in their factories.
We’re supporting our suppliers in developing predictive, agile, resilient, and integrated HRM capabilities. By investing in HR professionals, systems, and processes our suppliers will be able to have the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles, who are engaged, empowered, and invested in driving their business success.
We have teams in each of our regions with individuals dedicated to working with our suppliers to measure and develop their HRM capabilities. In the last several years, these engagements were often part of an integrated approach to HMK’s Lean Management Framework.
We will continue to evolve our approach, partnering with organizations focused on developing relevant tools and services to support suppliers as they drive their strategies around workforce investment and management. For examples of how we are working to explore use of innovative hr tools, see our story on worker technology.
