#1706 – We continue our series on Accelerating HR’s Business Impact with Tim Sackett, President of HRU Technical Resources, contributor to the website Fistful of Talent, and author of his own blog, The Tim Sackett Project. He talks with Dr. Mindy Hall about the importance of talent and performance in today’s organizations, and why HR needs to be more proactive in shaping its own destiny.
#1704 – When embarking on an HR transformation, organizations tend to place most of their focus on their product (usually the HR technology) and process, but consider their HR people with a backwards glance versus a focused investment. For this second episode in our series on Accelerating HR’s Business Impact, Lisa Calicchio, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Wyndham Worldwide, joins the program to talk about the people element of HR transformations and how HR practitioners get equipped to operate in these new models of HR.
#1703 – We talk with Lisa Uthgenannt, CHRO for LabCorp, about effective strategies for developing HR teams, the role senior HR leaders should play in development, and the skills HR practitioners most need to develop for the future. The first episode in our series on Accelerating HR’s Business Impact.
#1410 – What makes it so that in 2020 there is not another article written about how the HR function is not living up to its potential? Mindy Hall talks with HR executives Donna Torelli, Lisa Uthgenannt, and Joan Winterbottom about their reactions to Ram Charan’s article, “It’s Time to Split HR”: where they agree, where they differ, and what the HR function must do to shift the conversation.
In today’s organizations, human resource professionals are being called upon to go beyond traditional elements of their job to engage strategically in organizational efforts that drive business cultures and results. This shift in the HR function requires a different set of skills: in addition to the more transactional competencies that have historically been valued, it requires a deeper facility for personal impact, emotional intelligence, and conscious use of self.
