Assets + Liabilities =HR: They Can’t Do It Without Us

Wednesday 9:30 – 10:30 AM

Session Description

We know that business can’t exist without HR – so why is it so hard for leaders to see that? Human Resources professionals have to take control of the conversation and demonstrate their value every day – and it’s not all that hard to do! They may see you as an administrative person who gets benefits cards and runs payroll, but you know that your daily actions control 60% of their total budget or more! Looking at the future of organizations, the new workplace systems and competencies we will provide tools for HR leadership that will demonstrate why HR MUST be at the decision making table. Join us for practical solutions to issues that will drive value every day!
