    Human Resource Leaders are transitioning from a compliance function to a strategic function with an occasional blended approach, such as implementing the new Health Care Reform Act.  This interactive workshop will provide the tools to think and act as a strategic partner in your company.  Topics include how to build and leverage strategic alliances; understand what the CEO needs from HR and deliver it; and creative solutions to grow your organization.

    Top three learning objectives of this presentation:

    1. Understand what the CEO and leadership team need from HR and how you can deliver!  Successfully increase HR’s visibility and influence in your organization.
    2. Brainstorm solutions to partner HR processes with business strategy and leave with tangible ideas for implementation.  Understand the financial and operational levers that drive your organization’s growth.
    3. Provide creative solutions to organization and employee challenges that are good for the employee, the company and in compliance with laws and regulations.  Yes we can have it all!
