“The image and profession of HR has evolved substantially during the past few decades, to where it is now one of the most vital functions in an organization today. Employees are viewed as “talent,” and the selection, development, and retention of that talent is seen as critical to the success of the business. During this six-month-long seminar, participants will discover how they can become more effective in their HR roles and prepare themselves for the increasingly strategic requirements of HR. A battery of assessments and ongoing executive coaching will enable participants to enhance their leadership contributions to the people side and business side in their corporations.”
