CEOs and organizations frequently state “Our people are our most valuable asset”, yet these same organizations actively manage people as a short term cost to be minimized or eliminated where possible. How can both of these philosophies exist in organizations today let alone be reconciled into a cohesive workforce talent strategy? The key to this puzzle lies in HR showing how talent across the workforce impacts and drives business results. This session is about how to change the perception of HR in the mind of Finance and C-Suite business leaders through effective use of the ‘Language of Business’.

HR has the ability to truly drive a more productive and effective workforce that in turn drives superior business results. This session introduces metrics and methods that are predictive and easily understood by finance. The session features selected methods, stories and metrics that HR can leverage to build a more effective HR function and consistently get approval for projects and, resources from traditionally reluctant CFO’s.

This session covers the following:
  • Understand key differences between HR and Finance roles, goals and language
  • Finance methods and techniques HR can use to bridge the communication gap
  • Building a business case in HR that Finance will understand and approve
  • How HR can educate Finance with key metrics and simple ROI forecasts 
Additional real world case studies will also be shared on practical application of selected metrics and business case examples for organizations seeking to bridge the HR and Finance divide.
