Talk at the 2017 California HR Conference

What business wants from HR is not what HR is prepared to deliver. Historically, the HR function focused on providing hygiene programs such as pay, benefits, and training. With increasing economic uncertainty, the people needs of businesses have changed. According to a recent Deloitte survey, the HR functions at best, earned a ‘C’ when it comes to delivering business impact. Many HR functions are attempting to evolve with the times. The bottom line is that all their investments are doing little to move the needle on what really matters to the business and employees. It is time to rethink HR.

In this talk, Dr. Shreya Sarkar-Barney presents a new operating model that positions HR in the critical path to achieving business success. The model powered by evidence-based methods is brought to life through case studies. Learn how a leading pharmaceutical firm reignited a failing collaboration, and a mid-sized fast growth tech firm closed a revenue gap using this new HR model. The talk ends with actionable insights and a roadmap to drive measurable change through evidence-based HR.
