HR’s Challenge of Not Being Everything to Everybody

On March 16, 2017, HR Starr held its annual HR Conference in Los Angeles, California. This conference annually draws more than 800 participants for the one day. I had the honor of presenting to a large group of HR Professionals “HR’s Challenge of Not Being Everything to Everybody.” As with all my sessions, an interactive and participative learning environment ensued allowing real time participant involvement and dialogue. A number of current real world topics were explored including, “What is HR?”, “Who has Real Responsibility and Ownership for HR Functions”, “Sphere of Influence”, “HR’s Role in Being the Driver of Change,” and more.

Since 2014 I have been focusing on both the broad role that Human Resources Professionals plays within their organization, regardless of size and helping those HR Professionals better understand that a key part of their individual core responsibility lies in developing, driving and maintaining solid partnerships within their organization. As individual partnerships begin to develop a natural fallout occurs, the seeds of trust, credibility, reliability and respect begin developing and it’s HR’s role to ensure each individual partnership continues to grow. On the subject, I have now had the honor of presenting at two major Human Resource conferences. First – the 2016 HR Starr Conferences in los Angeles and San Francisco. Second – the HR West Conference in Oakland on March 6th, 2017. Each of the above HR Conferences individually draw between 800 to 1,000 HR professionals. My next HR Conference presentation will be July 12 in South San Francisco at the HR Starr San Francisco Conference. Have questions – facing similar challenges?
