Value Creation Through HR: Why is this the great time to be in HR?

This is a GREAT time to be in HR! Why? Because in a world of increased social, technological, economic, political, environmental, and demographic change, HR creates sustainable value. In the presentation, we will review 3 domain and 8 specific actions HR can take to deliver increased value.

  1. Assumptions: HR professionals need to recognize and evolve their assumptions about HR work. Unconscious biases often get in the way of real HR value.
  2. Outcomes: HR professionals need to be clear about the key outcomes they deliver through their work (talent, leadership, and organization). They should offer innovative solutions for each of these outcomes.
  3. HR Implications

These are exciting times for HR professionals to rise to the opportunities they face. Participants will have innovative ways to think, act, and feel that make a difference in their personal and professional lives and the lives of those the serve.

This presentation will share the latest thinking in HR value creation as well as specific tools for turning ideas into impact. For each of these value creators, Dave will offer specific concepts, examples, and tools so that participants can leave with a roadmap for value creation in their companies.
