Lead the charge to synchronize HR, finance, and operations to improve processes and reduce turnover

Join us for a fast-paced program focused on reducing the turnover of key employees and improving productivity, by aligning HR's efforts with other key departments. This discussion will reveal the synergies that emerge when operations, finance, and HR collaborate as a team. Positive outcomes include increasing efficiencies, more transparent communication, heightened employee engagement, optimal resource utilization, accelerated innovation, and increased profitability.

You'll learn how strategic planning becomes more potent when HR aligns human capital strategies with business goals and then collaborates with operations and finance. Discover how shared performance metrics, facilitated by HR's performance appraisal systems, empower cross-functional success.

Attendees will learn from case studies of success and failure, and gain practical tactics to strengthen cross-departmental communication and optimize resource allocation. Our presenter will share seven areas where aligning HR with cross-functional efforts with operations and finance can ensure greater organizational success and offer tactics for each. Take advantage of this opportunity to better understand the organizational alignment tactics needed to harness the collective power of operations, finance, and HR.
