How to Be Strategic as an HR Department of One
In-Person Wednesday 06/14/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Emerging Professional, Mid-Level
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how to speak the CEO's language, ways HR can contribute to the bottom line, how to create a strategic plan and how to implement it. 

Being the only HR employee in a company is both daunting and exciting. It's an experience that can accelerate your growth as an HR professional. You will need to be resourceful, agile, accessible, strategic, and tactical. If you are inheriting a previously-established structure, the experience may be less challenging.  However, if you are expected to build the HR department from the ground up, you will need to withdraw from your bank of HR competencies and organizational and interpersonal skills to be successful.   

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn ways HR can contribute to the bottom line.
  • Discuss the complete HR strategy.
  • Implement your strategic plan.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
