Why You Should Attend!#ArgyleHR
The perception of HR is changing. Due to digital trends and capabilities, and accelerating business demands, the role of HR is shifting from a cost center to a strategic business unit. Instead of administering programs for “human resources,” HR leaders are instead bringing “resources for humans” to the entire organization.
This forward-thinking approach requires HR roles to have a deep understanding of the business and stay in sync with the C-suite early and often. Mergers and acquisitions, leadership changes, shifting strategies, and succession planning due to changing demographics all require a business-minded people strategy from the start, not an afterthought.
Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with Reflektive, is bringing together leading HR executives from across industries to discuss these topics and more at our 2017 HR Virtual Event: A Seat at the Table: The New, Strategic Role of HR. The event will focus on several areas, including (but not limited to):
• The key to understanding employee motivation in an era of unparalleled employee and customer choice
• Why an employee-centric mindset is linked to company performance
• How HR can use technology to offer more strategic value
The "2017 HR Virtual Event: A Seat at the Table - The New, Strategic Role of HR" is proudly sponsored by:
