Organizational development through human resource management, or better known as Human Resources (HR), does not merely use theoretical concept of the West, but the local knowledge of Javanese culture can also inspire it. Take the concept of nguwongke wong (humanize humans) and sugih tanpo bondo (rich without property) as examples, which according to UGM Professor of Psychology, Prof. Dr. Djamaludin Ancok, are suitable and relevant in the current modern organizational development. "Human is no longer considered an asset in the concept of an organization, but an important part of the organization. That way human is increasingly resourced and more meaningful," said Ancok in Management Discussion Forum, The Future of HR ', which took place at the Faculty Meeting, MM UGM, Tuesday (16/8).
According to Ancok, the concept of the future HR no longer considers money as benchmarks to improve performance, but the establishment of sense of togetherness and a conducive working atmosphere. "This is where the concepts of 'nguwongke wong' and 'sugih tanpo bondo' are very relevant," he said.
In addition to being innovative, a corporate HR leader has to be able to encourage the growth of competence and mutual sharing of information among employees. "Don’t let the organization eradicate the competence. If it is fragmented, bureaucratic and does not share knowledge, the cost is very expensive," he said.
According to Ancok, an HR leader should assume all people who work in the company as an important person. No one is considered more important than the others. "Previously, people consider a pilot as the most important person in flying a plane, but now the more important person is the car driver who drives the pilot to come on time to the airport," said Ancok.
Meanwhile, senior management science expert of the UGM Faculty of Economics and Business, Hani Handoko, Ph.D., says HR leaders need to create a new strategy to build a change in leadership, mindset, culture of employees in helping the organization to achieve its main objectives. "Employees are involved not only physically, but also mentally," he said.
Handoko adds that HR management strategies should place the employee in accordance with their expertise. If it does not, a feeling of frustration will appear. Therefore, the task of HR is to improve the competence, commitment, and employee contributions to provide the best for the company with the proportionate remuneration. "People who stay at work usually have a little to 'give', but have much to 'get'. Meanwhile, those who opt to leave the company is because they have a lot to 'give', but have little to 'get’,“ he added. So, what brings a person to the workplace? According to Handoko, it is not the money or status, but rather the work relationship that has been established in the workplace.
