December Best Practice Exchange

Building Credibility and Increasing Profit Through Best Practices – Presented by JeanAnn Trombley

Thursday, December 6  8:00 – 9:30 a.m.     Calhoun Beach Club, Minneapolis

You know that HR contributes to the bottom line. HR practitioners intuitively know that a business is only really as good as the people working within it. Without people, you simply don’t have a company. In fact, the literal definition of a company is ”a group of people.” And it is HR that is responsible for those people. Attracting them, developing them, and strategically organizing them in a way that enables the business to perform at its best are a few of the ways that HR adds value.

At this Best Practice Exchange, JeanAnn will walk through a case study that not only demonstrated the value of HR to one company in particular, but it largely dictated the course an entire industry.

JeanAnn will talk about the importance of demonstrating the value of HR and using HR best practices in order for your CEO, Board of Directors, and other senior leaders to see HR as adding critical value to the business. She will provide ideas about how HR can be an important voice in the strategic conversation, and how to help HR to be a profit-maker and not just a cost center.
