    Join Toba Otusanya at the session titled:

    “Linking People Strategy to Business Result: The Human Resource Challenge” (Masterclass)


    The Human Resource function is saddled with the responsibility of implementing the people agenda that will drive business results. However, the people agenda does not operate in isolation, as it must align with the business strategy. Designing and implementing an effective “people strategy” that can deliver business outcome could be challenging but more challenging is how to link the strategy to business result.

    Over the years, HR Leaders have “struggled” to be at the table as they strive to demonstrate the contribution of HR to revenue and the bottom line. Business leaders see HR as a cost center rather than the strategic business partner that contributes highly to driving business outcome.

    How can HR overcome the challenge by highlighting the link between HR functions and business results? This will be the focus of this session as the speaker seeks to provide practical ways of linking People Strategy to Business Result.
