Building the Bridge Between HR Practices and Business Strategy

Building the Bridge Between HR Practices and Business Strategy
August 14, 2008 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
In today’s lean economy, HR is being held more accountable for delivering initiatives that are aligned with business strategy and result in business growth. Recognizing that your people are your competitive advantage, HR must strategically allocate resources and deliver programs that will make the most impact to the bottom line. This webinar is part of a series of webinars that will demonstrate how to intertwine critical business objectives throughout all your HR processes. We will discuss how companies have effectively used competency modeling as the foundation to define the behaviors that lead to business success, to evaluate potential applicants in the hiring process, to develop and build bench strength and lastly hold employees accountable for results. This first webinar will focus primarily on how to efficiently build competency models and integrate them into the business without overburdening the organization. A variety of competency approaches will be discussed with specifics on how to:
  1. link competencies to the business objectives,
  2. create specific and not overly general competencies,
  3. develop competencies around job families or levels,
  4. implement competency models to evaluate applicants, focus development activities and measure performance outcomes.
Who Should Participate
  • any HR or Organizational Development (OD) professional interested in better aligning HR with business objectives
  • anyone interested in learning about more efficient competency modeling approaches
  • anyone responsible for recruitment and staffing of professional/managerial hires
  • anyone responsible for development and performance management
