Your Issue: Human Resources

Positioning HR as a vital business partner in creating shareholder value

Human resources (HR) executives are on the move. Leaving the back office for the boardroom. Shifting their focus from the front line to the bottom line. Playing the role of strategist and steward to companies that are facing the most daunting of people-related challenges: chronic labor shortages, intense pressure for growth and increased regulatory scrutiny among them.

To succeed, the HR department must turn its inward focus outward. By anticipating work force trends, shaping and executing business strategy, identifying and addressing people-related risks and regulations, and enhancing work force performance and productivity, HR departments can earn their place among the top value drivers in the organization.
