C-level Perspectives on How HR Can Take on a Bigger Role in Strategic Planning
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), on behalf of IBM and Oracle, recently surveyed a number of C-level executives in North America and Western Europe to understand how HR can take on a bigger role in driving growth. The EIU took a look at whether the HR function is managing to forge the close and robust relationships with the two most important decision-makers in the organization--the CEO and the CFO. It also investigated the precise nature of these working relationships, how they have been affected by the recent economic downturn and how they vary across industries and regions.
The resulting reports highlight the actions senior HR leaders can take to place themselves at the heart of the debate on a company’s strategic direction. In this session, IBM and Oracle HCM specialists will review the findings of the EIU research reports and provide guidance on how technology innovation can help to align talent strategies with long term business goals.
Participants will gain an understanding of the following:
• Results of the Economist Intelligence Unit study around "Executive Perceptions of the HR Function"
• Differences in perspective between CEOs and CFOs
• Identify how the HR professional can take a bigger role in driving business growth
With the growth of the modern knowledge economy, the quality of an organization’s people has never been more critical to its financial performance. Consequently, the HR function has sought to broaden the purely transactional responsibilities it conducted in the past--such as administering the payroll and employee benefits--to play a more central role. HR directors are striving to prove that they have the necessary commercial perspective and experience to make the desired transition to valued strategic partner.
