"The Next New Thing: How HR creates Value from the Outside In" Presented by David Ulrich

HR is not about HR…it is about the business. HR has a unique opportunity to deliver value for the business. We will review four forces that increase the role of HR and we will highlight the ways HR can add more value with a focus on outside/in. The HR profession has continued to evolve from an administrative and technical/functional focus to a strategic focus. We believe that the next step in HR is to focus on “HR from the Outside In.” This session will be woven around three questions to help HR professions respond to future opportunities:

1. Perspective: What is your greatest work challenge today?
2. Outcomes: What does HR uniquely bring to the strategy discussion?
3. Transformation: What are keys to HR transformation?

Participants will leave this session with the ability to better assess and improve their HR department through an outside in perspective. We will offer specific actions to improve the HR department and skills of HR professionals. For more information on David Ulrich, visit his website.
