Unfortunately, more often than not, HR leaders are so focused on the day-to-day tasks, you miss that your own department is not structured properly and can actually hurt your company's growth opportunity. This session will provide 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!). Walk away with the 10 secrets of creating a department and organization built to grow. You will learn how to develop your strategy for leading organizational change as well as how to evaluate your organizational effectiveness and where you should focus first to maximize your benefit to the company.
