2-Day Strategic HR Leadership Certificate Program: Winning A Seat At The Table (Starts Jan 26 2023)

January 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am - January 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm


We all agree that employees are our greatest asset, but how often do we see organizations treating employees as assets? Gallup analytics reveal that just 33% of United States workers and even a lower percentage of global employees are engaged at work, even though engagement is only one component of aligning, and building a great workforce. The role of HR leaders has been evolving for years and of course, the pandemic, political and social topics, and concerns dramatically accelerated this evolution. It is more evident now than ever that HR must adapt to the shift from supporting, administrative roles, to leadership, supporting and guiding organizational principles and KPIs of core business functions. Realize and understand why HR is seated firmly in the chair at the executive table as a strategic partner and is viewed as the bridge between the workforce and the organization.
