Become the Driving Force for Performance and Productivity - Establishing HR in Business Operations

Presented by Chad Sorenson

Friday, April 13, 2018  | 12:45 PM to 1:45 PM

The Human Resource Department is not simply a cost center in your organization – or at least it shouldn’t be. The potential of HR can be realized only if the HR staff earns the recognition, speaks the language of business, and the business realizes the value of HR. So how do we make this happen? It starts with changing the mindset of both the business and HR.

About the Speaker: Chad V. Sorenson, SPHR, SHRM-SCP is the President and founder of Adaptive HR Solutions, LLC and has over 20 years of diverse business, communications and human resource experience. He works with companies that range from 5 to 1,200 employees and focuses on leadership development, manager training, employee performance management and employer compliance in industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, construction trades, and professional services organizations.

Are You Ready for an Alignment? Linking HR Strategy to your Business Strategy

Presented by Karen Gregory

Friday, April 13, 2018  | 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Human Resource (HR) strategy is so much more than employee satisfaction and benefits. It is about business growth, increasing employee performance and controlling costs. The bottom line is that it’s all about business results. When HR managers identify the real goals of the organization and how the organization will utilize its human capital to reach these goals, then, and only then, can the HR strategy be developed and fully aligned with the business strategy. This workshop will dive into what it takes for HR professionals to link their HR strategy to their business strategy.

About the Speaker: As President and CEO of HRSS Consulting Group, LLC headquartered in Cocoa, Florida, Karen Gregory has grown her company to include a team of experts in coaching, human resource (HR) strategies, employee training, and organizational assessments and leadership development, of which all, when established and leveraged successfully through her insightful and engaging techniques, create high performing organizations with positive results on their bottom line.
