    Presenting your HR Business Case to the C-Suite - Kendra Dodd

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify business problems where HR solutions can be most valuable. 

    2. Learn how to place a dollar value on the problems, solutions, and profit increase.

    3. Create business proposals that solve business problems with HR solutions. 

    This session will challenge you to think like a partner in the business. That means you need to think like a CEO - or find out how your CEO thinks - in order to identify business problems and opportunities and offer viable HR solutions. Your effectiveness as a partner in the business is predicated on how successful you are in speaking the language of your senior leaders. We will also discuss how to dig up and generate applicable data in order to calculate dollars and cents to present to the C-Suite. Finally, we will walk through a business proposal step by step.
