JWI 522 Strategic Partnering with the C-Suite
Human resources encompasses much more than benefits and birthdays. Leaders must find ways to navigate past this perception and position themselves with not only a seat at the table, but as an independent confidant to the CEO. Students will explore how to align the competencies and behaviors of the workforce with the strategic goals of the organization. In addition, human resource leaders need to develop themselves as the in-house experts on dealing with complex ethical and legal issues facing employers today. Students will examine the various regulatory agencies, policies and guidelines impacting the workforce, and identify ways to ensure compliance while driving results. Students will learn about the impact of federal and state regulations as they pertain to employee relations, compensation, hiring and terminations.
