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.
