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;
