Positioning HR as a Strategic Partner

Free Webinar on Thursday, April 23 at 2:00 PM EDT

Over the last decade, Human Resources has been encouraged to take on the role of strategic partner. But what does that really mean?

To be a truly strategic partner, HR professionals need to understand the goals and needs of the entire organization and make specific connections between business issues and human capital decisions. You need to show you’re business savvy enough to understand how a strategic approach to human capital can drive the business forward and offer a convincing ROI.

In this webinar, we’ll take a practical approach to transforming your HR role from transactional to strategic.  Starting at the beginning, our speaker will walk through at the differences between the two models, and discuss how best to develop a business case for change that will convince your executive team. Then we’ll cover how to make the change and communicate the benefits to your organization.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, April 23 for an in depth look at what being a strategic partner really means and some practical tips on the steps that will move your role from transactional to strategic.

Our speaker, Debbie Laudenslager, will share her thoughts on making the transition and focus on four specific areas that will give you an ideal starting point:

  • Understanding the differences between transactional HR and strategic HR;
  • Identifying the core competencies required for your HR strategic business partner model;
  • Communicating the benefits to the organization of moving to a more strategic HR partnership;
  • Linking projected outcomes to company goals to align the transformation with company business objectives.

When Dave Ulrich Talks About Talent Management & HR, Everybody Listens


Shortly after launching TLNT back in the summer of 2010, I wrote something that described Dave Ulrich as “an all-around HR Guru” and that he was “one of the greatest HR thinkers of our generation.”

Well, I was probably a little too modest in my description of him.

The Harvard Business Review describes Dave as “one of the world’s leading human capital/HR experts,” and he certainly is, but he’s also a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan and best-selling author of books such as The Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant Organizations; and, HR from the Outside In: Six Competencies for the Future of Human Resources.

Yes, Dave Ulrich is as close as you get to an HR legend — and he’s a big reason why you need to attend TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta. Read more…

Making Job Descriptions Work for You

Is writing a job description just one more task that has to be checked off? Do you find yourself reduced to just putting down the basic bullets and pressing send before forgetting all about it?

A job description doesn’t need to be a list of clichés and impossible requirements. Instead it can provide your ideal candidate with a snapshot of life inside your company and the exiting possibilities for the right hire. It can leverage and enhance your brand, building up interest even from candidates who aren’t considering a job move…yet.

Join us for a free webinar on Thursday March 12 for a practical session on polishing up your job descriptions to attract better candidates.  

Our  speaker, Jessica Max , will share her love of the well-written job description and provide tips you can put to work straight away to write more compelling job descriptions that appeal to the right candidates and enhancing your company’s brand.

5 Ways to Make a Contingent Workforce Program More Strategic & Compliant

Contingent workers provide great flexibility to companies looking for specialist skills on an as-needed basis.

Given the advantages, it’s no wonder that the use of contingent workforces continues to grow at a rapid pace. However, that growth also brings challenges as contingent workers are often managed piecemeal by separate departments using different vendors and various processes. The result can be a fragmented system that opens a company up to inefficiencies and compliance risks.

Third party vendors have developed solutions aimed at helping companies streamline and manage the growing contingent workforce but with all the options available, how can you determine which one will work best for your company?

The webinar will cover why companies turn to third parties and provide an overview of Contingent Workforce Models, including Vendor Management Systems (VMS), Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). We’ll examine five (5) key areas that you can focus on when deciding on the right program for your circumstances:

  • Program structure;
  • Supplier management;
  • Cost, value & quality;
  • Compliance and risk;
  •  Data & analytics.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, April 2 to learn more about Contingent Workforce Models and how to work effectively with third-party suppliers.

Our speaker, Julia Levy, will share best practices around VMS, MSP and RPO and how her company, Assurant is using their programs to drive efficiencies and meet business growth demands. She’ll also dispel some of the myths associated with supplying talent through a third-party talent model.

You’ll leave the session with tips on how to work with third party suppliers and metrics that go beyond time and cost.

Who should attend?

If you’re weighing Contingent Workforce Models or want to get more out of an existing system, join us on Thursday April 2.

The webinar will fill up fast. Register for free to reserve your seat now.

Can’t attend? No problem! Register for the webinar and you’ll receive a link to view the video recording the next day.
