Learn how HR can seize the opportunity to become the consultant the organization needs.
HR requires an urgent overhaul to deliver greater business value and innovation. Moving beyond discussion, companies are increasingly acting, examining the capabilities of the HR department, establishing learning opportunities, refreshing HR strategies, and updating their connections with internal business partners.
SHRM President and CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., talks with PCTY Talks host Shari Simpson about the major "reset" happening in HR right now and what the future holds.
