Topic:              Finding a Seat at the “C” Table

Speaker:         Alan Kinsey

Two significant trends are affecting the human resources function. First, the US is rapidly transforming into a knowledge based economy which greatly increases the need for a properly skilled and effectively deployed workforce.  Second, many day-to-day tactical HR functions can now be outsourced making more time available for strategic contribution. These two trends present an opportunity for HR to transform their role into a strategic partner helping chart the organization’s course for growth and improvement.


In this session, we will examine how the HR function is perceived by CEOs at the macro level. Then we will examine some specific ways to leverage this perception into a more strategic partner role. We will discuss the specific types of information that HR must know to become a productive strategic contributor. Finally, we will examine a real business case scenario with a focus on the best way for HR to help solve an important problem and support the ultimate solution.

Participants in the session will leave with specific action items for improving their strategic importance in their organization.

This program has been approved for both HRCI and SHRM credits
