Buisness Skills for HR Professionals: Financial Literacy


Originally presented: September 5, 2018 

Length: One hour 

Credits: One SHRM PDC and one HRCI Business credit 

Presenter: David Forman



As HR professionals are asked to make increasingly important contributions to the organization, they must be able to speak the language of the business; and that language is money.  Some believe that HR is good with words, but not so good with numbers, especially the financial kind.  This does not mean that HR professionals should become certified accounting experts, but it does mean that HR can and should become more fluent in key financial concepts, be able to read and analyze income statements, look for the story behind the numbers, and be able to ask more informed questions. 

This webcast presents information on key financial concepts and provides practice in reading financial statements.  After participating in this webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Assess your own financial IQ.
  • Describe the definition and distinctions among revenue, profit, cash and assets.
  • Discuss the importance of the value of intangible assets of an organization.
  • Analyze various income statements to determine the story behind the numbers and identifying additional data to gather and questions to ask.

Business Skills for HR Professionals: Business Acumen


Originally presented: July 25, 2018 

Length: One hour 

Credits: One SHRM PDC and one HRCI Business credit 

Presenter: David Forman



According to the Corporate Executive Board, Business Acumen is the most important strategic attribute for HR professionals.  If this quality is not present, HR professionals will be limited in making further contribution, and will continue to be focused just on reactive, functional and tactical activities.  The good news is that business acumen—seeing the bigger picture; understanding customers and the market, recognizing how all aspects of the organization need to work together, and articulating how the organization adds value—can be learned and enhanced.

This webcast presents information, models and tools that can help HR professionals be more business focused.  It improves their understanding of the business issues and challenges that keep business leaders awake and helps them recognize that the business’s agenda is HR’s agenda.  After participating in this webcast, participants will be able to:

• Discuss why business acumen is an essential quality necessary to being recognized as a business leader.

• Describe the importance of aligning HR’s agenda to strategy and business goals.

• Anticipate how external factors might impact the business in the future.

• Use a SWOT analysis to help establish the HR agenda.
