HR On Purpose
Tuesday 8:00 – 9:15 AM
HR is a critical function in organizations and is a fantastic profession !! Too often we sell ourselves short versus leveraging the value and strength we bring each day. This session shows practitioners tangible ways to own their role in their company, effective ways to integrate across departments, and how to build and sustain the human factor in the workplace.
