Aligning Business + HR Strategy


Chief Human Resource Officers (CHROs) often operate at an enterprise level, where departments converge to mutually support each other in the accomplishment of the broader organizational purpose.  This circumstance calls for CHROs to ensure that their HR departments gain a greater appreciation of the organization’s strategic context, and better understand how they may best support its stated goals.   This work is crucial, as it sets the foundation for developing HR strategies and supporting plans that not only align with the organization’s overall strategic plan, but are also feasible, acceptable, and suitable.

As strategy is the coordinated relationship between ends (the “why”), ways (the “how”), and means (the “with what”); and as our team members are our most vital resource, developing HR strategy that is nested and aligned with the overall organizational strategy is an essential element to gaining success and competitive advantage.  This presentation will discuss principles of design and strategy development, that HR departments may apply to their organizations.
