Transforming The HR Department: New Developments In HR Transformation


Speaker Name :William Rothwell


03:00 PM EST | 12:00 PM PST

75 Minutes


Human resource departments are being pressured as never before to demonstrate their contribution and value to their organization. One indication of that is the emergence of so-called HR transformation. While HR transformation is sometimes a term in search of meaning, it usually means a fundamental re-chartering of what the organization’s HR department is to do, why it exists, and what efforts it undertakes. CEOs have continually stated that they want proactive HR departments that operate at the strategic rather than tactical level. And yet they are often disappointed. This session describes how to reinvent and fundamentally transform HR in an organization, describing various common choices to reduce the routine activities that occupy too much time for HR departments and increase the strategic issues that should be the focus of HR. To meet the challenge of the future, HR practitioners must move beyond technical professionals to becoming true HR leaders and strategic change agents
