Aligning your People Plan to your Business Plan

Join us Thursday, November 12th at 12pm and hear from Ted Forbes! Ted will review why HR metrics for HR’s sake is career limiting and what the C-suite would like to see from HR.  There will be a review of how to present HR metrics that directly connect to the business results of your entity.  Ted will review what you do, what you measure, and what you report in business centered HR metrics. Ted will review how your company’s key business drivers will let your key HR strategy and tactics fall.

Ted will flesh out the “Business Acumen” aspect of the SHRM Competency Model and what they translate to in HR. He will review a case study of a “business driven HR program” and how the C-suite and HR priorities aligned.  Ted will show you how to articulate your key business drivers and how HR can help make this happen in metrics that make an impact.

Lastly, Ted will discuss how this might work for you and your company and why you would want to have business centered HR metrics

Learning Objectives:

1) Create understanding of the need for aligning a business’ people plan to its overall business plan

2) Be able to differentiate between “HR for HR’s sake” and “business driven HR”

3) Examine a framework for business-driven HR and consider how to use it
