Join us May 17 for “HR: A Valued Partner in Succeeding Today”


The purpose of an HR function is to support people and organizations in being effective, productive, and successful. HR departments have been transitioning from transactional to strategic business partners to be successful in meeting these expectations. The current environment of reduced funding, added stress to “do more with less” and a sense of uncertainty and confusion in the minds of employees has established a significant increase in the importance of HR playing a strategic role within an organization. Inaction or doing what we have always done while waiting for things to return to “normal” are not meaningful options. Board Secretary Rob Koch is our presenter for this workshop.

Join us on Thursday, May 17, 2012 for a half-day highly interactive workshop we will explore how HR teams can raise the bar on what and how they contribute to their organizations by changing their paradigms, enhancing their competencies, building strategic relationships with their internal partners, aligning the human talent with the organization’s strategies, creating an employee development culture, and building a best place to work culture.
