Editor's message: The role of the HR department stretches from setting people policies and procedures to feeding into the business strategy.
In Survey analysis > HR roles and responsibilities: 2013 XpertHR research we report that the current priority for HR departments in private-sector companies is organisational development, including organisational design, learning and development, succession planning and talent management. However, respondents from public sector organisations told us that remuneration, and cost cutting and restructuring will occupy their time in 2013.
