    The Topic:

    Strategic HR: How to Be Invited to the Table Without Asking

    HR is the holder of various strategic data points from salary analysis, turnover, overtime utilization, and more. Do we wait to be asked? This session will teach HR professionals to be proactive in demonstrating HR's value to the point of being invited to engage in projects. By listening to what management is working on and evaluating that in light of what we can contribute, we can be sought after - instead of avoided - for our partnership with leadership and recognized for our business acumen.

    Learning Objectives: 

    • Identify how we currently approach and speak to leadership vs. what we really mean
    • Identify through real examples what proactive reporting, analysis, and engagement can look like
    • Develop a strategy for getting invited to "THE" table

    Meeting Agenda

    • 11:30-12:00 Check-in / Networking / Announcements / Lunch
