Most HR leaders seek to have a voice at the executive and board level—the coveted “seat at the table.” Achieving this position provides HR a significant opportunity to be a strategic partner within the organization. Today, only a small percentage of CEOs look to their HR departments for assistance with critical strategies, and less than two-thirds of HR leaders report directly to the CEO. Yet things are changing and HR leaders at all levels must be prepared to provide key strategic leadership within changing organizational structures.

Make sure you secure your seat at the table!  Join NAAAHR Atlanta at our August 13, 2014 chapter meeting when a group of highly-regarded “HR Game Changers” share important moves that you need to know:

  • Lessons you must learn; skills you must acquire
  • Where HR is going and growing
  • Preparing to “Represent” when the spotlight is on you
  • How to get feedback to prepare for the next level
  • Tools for juggling  your priorities
  • How to let your brand light shine
  • Bringing strategic alignment and collaboration to the business partnership
