Maine HR Convention: May 10, 12, & 14, 2021 – Virtual+ Edition


Workshop B: HR Leader Forum

Friday, May 15th, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Your Post-Convention Path to Business Impact

What’s it all about? The Convention closes with this open-ended discussion on key attributes of HR leadership. Our portfolio of HR responsibility continues to grow as we evolve out of a compliance culture to a more holistic role. We’ll explore HR success stories on the data analytics, alliance building, and ethical fronts. Very little theory, but lots of idea sharing, mentoring, and coaching. Whether you currently sit in a position of influence, or aspire to the same, this session will help coalesce what you’ve learned during Convention week into a more strategic plan for your return to work on Monday.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Discuss three critical components of business impact – data, alliances, and ethics – as the HR profession continues its progression from ministerial work to strategic partnerships.
  • Immerse yourself in the value of data analytics, how Maine HR leaders have expanded their business horizons, and how to present information with integrity to other organizational decisionmakers.
  • Share examples of how HR leaders successfully nurture business alliances within and outside the four walls of the workplace.
  • Consider how to expand HR’s position as a leader in corporate social responsibility and as a moral and ethical center of the organization.
