As institutions increasingly see the value in prioritizing organizational culture as a foundation for performance and workforce retention, strategy must address the systems and structures in place that impact people. How the HR function is structured, empowered, and leveraged to enact strategy raises unique opportunities and challenges.
This community conversation, sponsored by the Group on Business Affairs (GBA) and the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP), sought to begin a dialogue on the intersection of HR and Strategic Planning (SP). The speakers discussed the following topics:
- How are HR and SP departments connected and how should the two teams work together?
- How does the work of HR impact the strategic plan & outcomes/metrics?
- How can HR transformation impact the effectiveness of an institution's strategy?
