The most effective HR professionals today possess an entirely new set of competencies, ranging far beyond human resource functions. This intensive, three-day course builds the business and financial acumen necessary for HR professionals to have a meaningful impact on the future of the business, beyond just talent management.


Why Should You Attend?
