The UN Secretary-General has set an imperative to ensure that the UN System emphasizes collaboration, efficiency and results as enablers for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The envisaged UN reforms will mean new ways of doings business for human resources (HR).
The United Nations Global Centre for Human Resources Services (OneHR) is the first initiative of its kind and forms a significant part of the UN’s corporate effort to continuously offer improvements across the HR discipline, by offering consolidated services, greater transparency and incubating innovative solutions. OneHR serves as a common United Nations shared service center, co-located with the UNDP United Nations Volunteers (UNV) on behalf of other participating UN agencies namely UN Secretariat, UNWRA, UNFPA, UNHCHR, WHO and UNESCO. OneHR operates through a virtual network of HR professionals across the globe with an administrative anchor in Bonn, Germany.
OneHR offers solutions to better support talent acquisition, staffing and organizational design in the UN System. The Center will initially offer two specific HR services, namely job classification and reference checking. This facility is anticipated to grow organically, beginning with two common services lines that are designed to demonstrate the benefits of an integrated operations platform, and the organizational flexibility needed to support diverse institutional mandates and business imperatives across the Organization.
The goal is to foster a global, adaptable HR ecosystem that is responsive and flexible, ensuring a culture of quality, standardization, and innovation through a shared service delivery and knowledge management platform. By investing in modernizing HR service delivery at the intersection of IT and HR, OneHR can enable automated work processes, workforce data management and analytics, client-centered service requesting and tracking. This specialized IT infrastructure will enable the Global Centre to develop a robust client relationship management solution as well as a knowledge sharing/data management system, is essential for the Global Centre to realize its value proposition. The initial planning and design for the IT Platform assumes a fully integrated CRM and knowledge/document repository.
