Transformational HR: Best Practices for Changing Human Resources to Serve the Needs of the Business

Strategy Content Area

 

The HR profession has continued to evolve to better support the needs of business, yet many HR teams are still under-performing or far from reaching their potential. Randy joins us to share some of the critical lessons and best practices for developing and enhancing your HR function. Randy will draw upon his experience from several HR transformations across multiple Fortune 500 companies in Atlanta. This insight can help HR to increase their value and effectiveness, or help business leaders to get the most from their human resources function and partners.

 

Learning Objectives:
1. Take personal responsibility for their own attitude, and help others to do the same.
2. Provide a unique and entertaining perspective on the progress and value of the HR profession.
3. Provide an update on what is trending in HR.
