In this month’s meeting we will hear from a panel of HR leaders who have risen to senior operational roles in their organizations. We will hear how HR and operational leadership differ – or perhaps are the same. We will also hear how HR leadership prepared them for operational roles. Through Q&A, we will explore the strategic role of HR in leading organizations.
Please join us for this informative discussion with senior organizational leaders. And have your questions ready!
