Please note that we moved this meeting date to the 4th Thursday of this month instead of the 3rd because of Spring Break!

As an HR professional, you can play a significant role in promoting the success of your organization by understanding your business objectives and the changing environment – nationally and globally – in which you compete. In this session, you will learn the business skills you need to develop to become a strong contributor to the “bottom line.” You will also review ways to leverage technology and three key tools – analytics, leadership development, and workplace flexibility – to more effectively engage your human capital assets in fulfilling your business goals.
