    Speaker Jim Morgan will discuss how HR means many things to many people, but does it mean “strategic partner” in your organization?  Survey after survey of CEOs and other executives show “Talent” as the number one business concern for employers.  If talent – people – is the #1 concern of the C-Suite, doesn’t it stand to follow that human resources should be the strategic partner?

    How are you strategically . . .

                  Helping build a talent supply chain

                  Evaluating the people needs of your organization

                  Advising the company leaders on finding and keeping talent

                  Leading the “competitive-edge” discussions on people

    Never before has human resources been in a position to lead strategic discussion like they are right now.  What are you doing about?
