We will review HR roles, competencies, and current challenges such as: The globalization of business; economic and technological changes; occupational shifts; workforce availability and demographics; and organizational costs. Learn the value of HR Effectiveness and Financial Performance by determining the ROI of all resources and expenditures. Learn about the HR scorecard, measurement and benchmarks and how to show value to your organization.
