Driving Business Results through Fearless HR
September 18, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
As HR’s role in organizations strengthens, there is an increasing need for HR leaders to step up, build upon the profession’s past, embrace HR’s purpose to drive business results; and be more data-driven, a lead-time ahead and a force multiplier. These are the key themes in David Forman’s best-selling book “Fearless HR,” and this session focuses specifically on how HR can directly impact business results.
Speaker: David Forman
