Gratitude is a rare thing to receive in human resources. Traditionally, HR’s role in many organizations was to do their best to keep up with paperwork and other tactical requirements of compliance issues, leading employees to see HR as disciplinarians and leadership to see HR as an obstacle to overcome.

But now that HR has the technological bandwidth to handle these compliance tasks, employees and leaders are expecting more. HR has to strike a balance between three competing roles: employee advocate, strategic partner, and compliance facilitator. The workforce continues to put emphasis on wanting to work for companies that will invest in their professional development, and companies are constantly in a battle for top talent. This puts HR in a unique position: They become the bridge between their leadership’s vision and the employee experience, doing their best to protect the organization and support everyone’s future in it. The new HR professional can’t just react to issues, they need the knowledge and tools to become a strategic resource for their organizations.

In this program, BambooHR's Cassie Whitlock and BizLibrary's Libby Mullen will discuss how HR professionals can balance the demands of legal, leadership and employee concerns. They'll cover four key facets where HR's efforts will be the main factor in producing desirable results, like increased employee engagement, higher productivity and strong company culture.

During this webcast, you'll learn:

  • How HR professionals can break free of stereotypes and become strategic partners within their organizations.
  • Four areas of your organization that can generate higher profits and happier employees when HR is viewed as an employee advocate.
  • The benefits of HR being able to hand over the torch to managers when it comes to giving individuals feedback and recognition.
  • The overall positive effect this transformation of the HR role can have on an entire organization and how to get your organization on board.
