You will learn how to identify actionable ways to be a more effective strategic business partner. 

The HR function is often not seen as an essential business partner. But there are proven steps you can take to claim HR's reposition and demonstrate effective, strategic value. The key is finding ways to drive and demonstrate HR's contribution in a language that business leaders understand. That means effectively using data and aligning HR and recruitment goals with business strategies already in play and familiar to the organization. In this session, we'll explore how you can communicate more effectively with the business, using data and aligning to strategies and goals that business leaders respond to. This session will show you how to:

  • Translate HR functions into a language the business understands.
  • Influence stakeholders and obtaining buy-in.
  • Interprete business data to use to guide your HR strategy.
