Any HR professional knows that there is never a lack of work in their department. From replying to an employee’s question about benefits to following-up with a manager on how to best restructure her department, there seems to be fewer hours in the day to accomplish all the tasks that HR needs to do. And this is the perfect reason why it makes sense to stop, assess, and understand what highly successful HR departments do – to focus, to produce results, and to achieve success.
This course provides a realistic discussion about the features of today’s dynamic business environment – one that demands HR to be agile and strategic while delivering specific compliance and productivity results. By understanding the successful habits of fine-tuned HR departments, you will glean information that can help transform your own HR department to run more smoothly.
Today’s complex and fast-paced business environment has meant more responsibilities and actions for HR departments. More legislative requirements, multi-faceted workforce factors, and ever-changing leadership directions demand that HR keep up (at the very least) or become obsolete and irrelevant.
These demands for time, policies, programs, and initiatives have spelled out a clear message to go in the opposite direction: to simplify and focus on what will most efficiently and effectively drive business-required results needed from HR.
