Do we really need “a seat at the table”?

Presented by Dr. Thomas Dullien, Executive Director, HR & Talent Development at Barona Resort & Casino

Pick up an HR magazine and it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the plethora of new demands that are expected of our HR departments: Strategic planning, talent management, employee engagement, performance management, leadership development, succession planning, etc. Of course this is all on top of our regular assignments of employee relations, compliance with labor law and agency requirements, organizational development and behavior, compensation and benefits, change management, and the associated data processing, date maintenance and date farming.

Over 90% of companies expect extensive data management of the employee base, yet 48% of these organizations never use it for decision making and most HR department in small and mid-size operations never get “a seat at the table”. So how can we add value to the organization?

Join the conversation with Thomas to look beyond trendy terminology and popular hype about the new role of Human Resource Management. What are the simple and still valid concepts that successfully drive, and also link, the efforts of your HR department with those of your organization:

  • Live, breath, encourage and model the vision, mission, and core values. (Caution: Not everything that is simple is easy!!!)

  • Align your staff members with the organizational values from the onboarding process through the separation process towards desired turnover and successful talent management.

  • Change does not create happiness, but employees happily support evolution and will be engaged.

  • Accountability comes seldom from what we do, but always from who we are.

How long have you tried to be everything for everybody? How is that working for you so far? Work with the strengths of your HR department and “Be YOURSELF; because you are the only one qualified to be YOU!
