HR has been evolving from a core to a strategic function. Research shows that HR initiatives impact the ability for organizations to be high performing. HR can now be counted among the departments called upon to help solve critical business problems. The HR function can play a crucial role in cultural transformation, increasing innovation, and offsetting impending talent shortages by insuring that you have the right employee base to sustain business growth and carry out strategic business plans.

  • What strategies can HR use to offset shortages due to a tighter labor market ahead
  • How to raise engagement to boost productivity
  • How to better use analytics to solve workforce and business problems
