HR Today - Doing More with Less

HR Today - Doing More with Less
August 2, 2012 at 11:00 - 12:00 PM ET
Alan Preston, President and CEO(Just Enough HR)
Doing more with less is standard operating procedure these days; HR departments and their budgets have been cut significantly. But doing more with less is not just about leveraging technology - it’s also about leveraging relationships to gain the support and cooperation of managers at all levels.

Just like any service organization, HR needs to put its customers first. But in some cases, internal relationships can become adversarial. Those who work more closely and collaboratively with their internal clientele are more highly valued and are much more likely to have influence in their organizations. Working on internal relationships can make a big difference.

Ask yourself:

1.       Do managers send their employees to you, expecting you to make decisions that are rightfully theirs?
2.       Do you notice that your managers don’t know what’s in your Employee Handbook?
3.       Do you have problem children who seem to need an inordinate amount of handholding?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you'd benefit from spending some time on enhancing these important relationships. You may in fact be enabling the very behavior that stretches you to the breaking point!

Streamlining HR doesn’t mean forgoing any of the critical responsibilities you have, it simply means becoming more efficient and effective by spreading the work around a little more evenly. Engaging a team of supportive colleagues outside of the HR department can have profound effects on the employee experience in your organization.

In this session you will learn to work best with each of your internal clients – especially those managers who tend to defer too much of their duties to HR. Learn to push back without alienating others as you build more collaborative, supportive relationships.
Who Should Participate
HR Generalists with outsized employee groups Sole Practitioners ("departments of one") HR Professionals at any level who strive to increase their influence
What You Will Learn
Techniques for building stronger relationships with internal customers. New opportunities to be more efficient, freeing up resources. Strategies for increasing influence and projecting credibility. Methods for leveraging inexpensive technology to improve service to internal customers.

"I hate to be critical but it sounds like you want to get better at what you do. I felt like too much time was spent ion the setup and not enough time on ""the meat"" . This may not have been universal I suppose it depends on the background one comes from. Thanks for sharing your time and your passion." 3 / 5

Great candid discussion. I believe HR fights for the seats at the table or as I put it relavency. Even though HR accounts for a significant portion of the business costs we are often discounted. If you can lay out to management (and your staff) how they fit into the business model and why what they do is important to the overall success of the company you win. 5 / 5
