HR Process Taxonomy



HR Process Taxonomy is a structured process classification framework detailing end to end HR processes. Having a clearly defined HR process taxonomy will enable organisations to have a common language within the business. HR taxonomy provide clarity on 'who does what' when mapped to the level 5 (task level) and help to get a wholistic view of all the HR processes and activities. However, note that HR process taxonomy isn't a full list of all HR accountabilities , products and services (e.g. Business partnering) and isn't intended to list down all non HR activities performed by HR or  list all the local variation of HR Processes. The above diagram shows a complete HR process taxonomy covering end to end HR processes from strategy to execution.

Process Taxonomy needs to be mapped to a task level (level 5) to get a good understanding of processes and will help to identify which role perform each tasks in your organisation. Also, it will give clarity on roles and responsibilities with clear RACI at all processes/ sub processes level. Process taxonomy gives a view of what an ideal process 'should be' as per design, however to understand more about if the processes is being followed and executed consistently, deploying an HR activity tracker survey before during HR transformation program planning will help.

Below diagram shows the process framework that we covered in one of the previous blog



Please note: Level 5 (task level) will be dependent on your business. Also level 4 processes/ sub processes would require some tweak from the below model based. You may also use standard frameworks from APQC, Hackett Group.
