Human Resources as a Strategic Partner

Thursday, August 20, 8am - 10am.

This is a virtual program - meeting information will be sent to all who register for the program.


Today’s Human Resources professionals are required to take the strategic direction of a company and translate it into tangible objectives, metrics, and an overall human capital strategy. Many companies begin thinking about strategy from a financial perspective, but ultimately without people executing project by project, financial goals are rarely achieved. Strategic execution relies heavily on understanding a collective vision, analyzing the needs to achieve this vision, and creating a plan to fill in these gaps. HR should play the role of leader and partner in understanding the vision as it relates to people and the gaps that might exist within the realms of culture, learning, etc.


By the end of this session, participants will: · 

  • Understand how the role of HR is essential in a company’s success in creating and deploying strategy.

  • How to set strategic objectives that are meaningful and intentionally move toward a specific goal.

  • How to avoid pitfalls of owning metrics that are not within direct sphere of control.

  • How to bring the employee voice and buy-in to strategic planning and execution.
