Keeping Score Matters: Leadership Metrics and Strategies to turn your HR Department into an Engine for Growth

Learning Objectives

1. Understand how to translate your company's goals into a department structure that supports the mission and objectives across the organization.

2. How revenue growth affects a company's structure, where the weaknesses in the overhead operations will surface and what to do to prepare your department and organization in advance.

3. Developing your strategy for leading organizational change and expansion across the organization.

4. Evaluating your organizational effectiveness and where you should focus first to maximize your benefit to the company.


Most company leaders focus their time and energy on sales, marketing and production, not on overhead departments such as HR. That spells OPPORTUNITY as it gives you the chance to show off your leadership chops! Unfortunately, more times than not, HR leaders are so focused on the day-to-day tasks, they miss that their own department is not structured properly and can actually hurt a company's growth opportunity.

Join Valerie Grubb as she provides a step-by-step guide on how to create a dynamic team and flexible structure that can support the organization as it expands to meet customer demands. You will learn that what you do today may not support your organization in the face of expansion (and what to do about it!). You'll walk away with the 10 secrets of creating a department and organization Built to Grow!

During this highly interactive session, you will learn how revenue growth affects a company's structure and what to do to prepare your department and organization for expansion.
