Advancing HRM Through Collaborations

While individuals (HRM professionals), corporates (HRM service-oriented firms like consulting firms et cetera), regulatory institutes perform their functions in their different domains and meet their individual targets, it is important to explore the possibilities of collaborations as a way of advancing the human resource management (HRM) profession. 

Collaborations can take place at different levels. At the individual level, a few professionals could leverage on their unique skill sets to execute a project that adds value to society. For instance, they may collaborate to train aspiring HR professionals on the fundamentals of HRM. They may also collaborate to write a book or conduct research which could be published in a local or international practitioner journal. 

At the corporate level, two or three HRM service-oriented firms could collaborate to execute an HRM or organizational development (OD) project which is beyond their individual capacities to execute. They could create a consortium of some sort guided by a detailed memorandum of understanding (MoU). 

At the institute or regulatory level, there could be local collaborations. For instance the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM) may collaborate with the National Institute of Management (NIM) to execute a project. At the international level, they could also collaborate with foreign institutes like Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) or Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD). 

Another opportunity worth exploring is the partnership between the academia and the practice community. There can be no practice without theory neither can there be theoretical advancements without practice. Collaborative engagements between the HRM practice community and academia in the HRM space is one of the robust ways to grow the profession. I believe that as members of the same profession (regardless of organizational affiliations) we have a common goal to advance the HRM profession and this can be achieved through solid collaborations. The world is moving away from seclusion and competition to collaborations as a way of achieving set goals, the HRM profession in Nigeria should not be an exception.
