"Insights for Aligning HR with Business Strategy"


Successful HR leaders align human resource strategy and practices with organization business strategies. They work with others on the executive team, not in HR silos. They adapt to meet changing business needs, build strong working relationships and negotiate effectively. They build and develop their organization’s talent pool and identify the data analytics needed for effective decision making. HR professionals at all levels will hear HR executives discuss their experiences navigating the HR leadership landscape and learn how they too can align their human resources practices with the business strategies of their organizations.



Participants in the program will gain an understanding of how to:

  • Design and lead effective HR strategies;
  • Build effective business alliances;
  • Develop and engage the workforce for the future;
  • Influence and negotiate impactful structures, processes and resources; and
  • Navigate successful HR careers.
