This webinar will provide HR professional development training to speak the language of business and produce results for the organization.
This HR professional training will enable the participants to become proactive members of the management team. They will learn how to align HR programs with operations, marketing, finance, and sales and contribute to the organization´s business goal setting.
The webinar will discuss the use of data base metrics for human resources and people processes that can measure the value created by functions and processes in HR. Also, understanding not how to justify an HR program but to measure whether that program is delivering value.
In short, we will discuss the paradigm shift from administration to creating business performance improvement.
Why Should You Attend
To be viewed as a leader, HR professionals must thoroughly understand their company´s business objectives, financial metrics, goals and objectives and align their people practices.
For years, HR has discussed getting a seat at the table. The reason that many don´t have that seat is that they do not add value to the organization. True, they may prevent problems but they are not proactive business partners and success builders. This is perhaps why CEOs have come from finance and marketing but rarely from HR.
