  • Dead Fish Grill 2207 Lake Rd Belton, TX





In a recent survey, only 25% of the HR leaders surveyed indicated that their HR Department was seen as having high strategic value by their organization. By understanding and using the concepts and frameworks presented, you can raise the perception of the HR function's strategic value and move away from the transaction-oriented, gate-keeping activities and move toward becoming a valued business partner.

At the completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Clearly articulate the different Value Propositions, and identiftheir organization's unique Value Proposition
  • Use their understanding the Value Proposition concept to become a more valued business partner
  • Identify how the HR function can be improved to better support their organization’s Value Proposition
