    HR’s Strategic Voice of Influence

    Why have a "seat at the table" if you don’t have a voice in the room? The business environment is rapidly evolving, and HR can, and should be, on the forefront of these changes. Human Resources leaders must learn how to create a strategic voice of influence that optimizes business performance in the new world of work. This session will offer new strategies, approaches and innovative ways to think about HR's role in organizational effectiveness, functional design and an operating model for the future. This session will provide insight into the latest trends in the business and economic environment that Human Resources leaders must understand and have a good grasp of the implications for their organizations, human resource functions and teams.
