The Big Picture

During Covid, HR was often leaned upon to address existential questions, such as can we open or not? In doing so, HR established a strong position at the executive table however it is prudent to highlight that this relatively new position may be perceived as a tactical, time-bound appointment rather than a strategic, ongoing role by others within the Executive Team.

 So how do we maintain and leverage this central position in the business?

During this Webinar, we will dig into what being a business partner means at the executive level. We know it means listening and supporting good commercial objectives, but it demands more than this. Owning a seat at the table means seeing the whole of the business and delivering outcomes as that bridge between the people & the business.

Join us for a very rich discussion about how to effectively navigate away from some of the misperception out there about the true strategic value HR professionals can bring.

What We’ll Discuss

  • We explore what it means to own a seat at the Executive table.
  • Bridging that gap with communication to your Executive table peers.
  • Being a business partner by listening to what your business needs to succeed today and tomorrow.

We look forward to this interactive discussion & debate and bring along your questions for Q&A.
