To improve performance, colleges and universities must align HR strategies with the overall strategies of the institution. HR plays a vital role in helping university leaders be intentional about the consequences of change on people’s anxieties, roles, and cultural assumptions. In this panel discussion, speakers will address how to integrate HR into the development of strategic and operational goals, how to bring financial and HR data and metrics together into a dashboard to keep leadership informed about people as they plan for the future, and various tools that can evaluate acceptance to change across the organization.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the strategic role of HR.
  • Integrate HR and financial data into a dashboard for leadership.
  • Gain insights on organizational change, culture, and performance.
