Coates: Strategic human resources to achieve company goals - The human resources at Coates

The HR function at Coates

The HR function at Coates operates at both corporate and business unit level. The corporate HR office is responsible for setting overall HR strategic direction and monitoring organisational effectiveness at a group level whilst supporting the HR managers in the business units. The HR managers of the individual business units implement the strategic direction within their business units, are responsible for day-to-day HR responsibilities, and provide feedback to the corporate HR team. Human resource management is critical to achieving company objectives.

The goal of the HR team is to implement and improve HR systems that support the purpose of the business and its vision and values, by developing and delivering a range of HR initiatives that support the critical success factors.
Within the context of the Coates Way, the second factor, 'Develop our people', is clearly supported by the HR function. Coates has committed considerable energy, resources and time to developing its human resources managementprocesses in this area. Developing employees is one of the ways in which the
HR department assists the business to achieve its vision.
