Webinar: Optimising HR’s Business Contribution

In today’s rapidly changing business environment, it’s more important than ever for HR to be commercial, close to the business, and clearly aligned to business strategy. However, the reality for many organisations is that HR is often disconnected from business priorities, and HR’s contribution to critical strategic and commercial objectives is not always clear.

During the webinar, we explored the current state of the HR function, the role HR should play in helping develop and execute strategy, and how HR can become more business relevant. Together with Karen Ward, Andy Newall, Angus MacGregor and Mike Haffenden we examined the following questions:

What is the current state of the HR function?
Where are the current strengths and where is HR falling short?
What role should HR play in helping to develop and execute business strategy?
How can HR become more business-relevant?
