Do your eyes glaze over when looking at a financial spreadsheet? Do you have difficulty understanding your CEO’s vision during company meetings? Ever mix up your debits with your credits? This session will address the basic financial and business areas which you should have a working understanding of to take some of the fear out of the “business” aspects of being a business partner. The ability to understand and diagnose the competitive and strategic challenges of organizations will be a hallmark of quality HR. We will discuss common financial and P&L terminology as well as basic marketing principles that you should understand, and then apply these principles to best practice development of a comprehensive HR agenda.
