SOLD OUT Session #703: Developing HR as a Strategic Business Partner: HR Transformation 3.0

2019 Annual Conference & Exposition
Learn how to develop the space, foundation and environment for culture alignment to occur.

The number-one driver of employee engagement and workplace performance is culture. So why do so many companies fail to establish a winning culture? Current research suggests that one of three main hiring decisions is based on information insufficient for either the employer or candidate to make an informed choice; similarly, one in three new hires do not make it past their one-year work anniversary. Creating a high-performance organization requires a paradigm shift and an increased focus on workforce engagement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Revamp the function of HR from process department to strategic business partner.
  • Create a talent management strategy that utilizes attraction, selection, development and retention processes.
  • Gain awareness of how to transform a workplace: from an environment of stifled communication, distrust, and low employee morale, into a culture of aligned relationships, high performance and productivity, empowered leadership, and elevated employee engagement.
Date(s) & Time(s): 
Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm
