Be Bold: HR as Internal Consultant

2014 Annual Conference

In order to transform the HR function from transactional and reactionary to strategic and future-focused, HR professionals must become proactive advisers with the confidence and credibility to influence others, make an impact, and drive change.  In this session we’ll explore how HR practitioners can transition to the role of internal consultant, eliminate roadblocks, and achieve buy-in.  Taking a bold and courageous approach to the practice of HR paves the way for the HR practitioner to serve as a true strategic partner within their organization.
