Why Should You Attend:

In the changing world of employment, Human resource departments are frequently being outsourced in the belief that they provide solely administrative functions and are, therefore, simply cost centers. If you are working in one of those departments, your job is not secure. Unfortunately, this trend is not going to change. HR departments or professionals that do not provide real, measurable value to the bottom line of their organizations will be relegated to the obsolete pile. The historic administrative duties of payroll, hiring, benefit administration and compliance management simply cannot be justified to most executives as needing to be kept in-house.

However, there is good news buried within this changing work culture. The substance of employee value has shifted away from labor, whether manual or technical, to knowledge and creativity. That change follows a change in business itself. To create value, business today must create new ideas, ways of doing things, approaches and services. The effective organization finds a way to distinguish itself from competitors using fewer tangible assets than the manufacturing plants and commodities of the past. To successfully execute this kind of knowledge-based strategy requires ongoing transformation of people. Human Resource professionals should be delivering this kind of real value to their organizations, but too often, does not know how to do so.

In this webinar you will learn the tools of strategic thought and of creating a department that delivers real, measurable value. When HR directors learn these tools, and are able to deliver the message of their value in real business terms (which you will also learn in this webinar), they become indispensable members of the team. You will leave this webinar with a checklist and a game plan to transform yourself into a strategic thinker and your department into a value center.
