Description

The Pro-Active HR Professional - Leading the talent strategy in your company

Speaker Jim Morgan from MRA discusses with us how HR means many things to many people, but does it mean “strategic partner” in your organization? Survey after survey of CEOs and other executives show “Talent” as the number one business concern for employers. If talent – people – is the #1 concern of the C-Suite, doesn’t it stand to follow that human resources should be the strategic partner?

Leading the “competitive-edge” discussions on people

Never before has human resources been in a position to lead strategic discussion like they are right now. What are you doing about?
