The practice of HR is broken: Dismantling beliefs of modern HR
What do you think of when someone mentions HR? If you’re stuck on the hiring and firing of employees, it’s time to shift your mindset. Businesses are changing the way they operate and now more than ever, they’re putting people first. Christine Song, Chief People Officer at Notch, and Humi’s very own Director of People Operations, Andrea Bartlett, are here to help you navigate today’s world of HR.
Together, we’re inviting you to hit us with your questions, whether you’re on the leadership team, an employee that works closely with HR, or an employee who isn’t entirely sure about what modern day HR looks like.
In this live event, you will:
- Learn about how the role of HR has evolved to be more of a strategic business partner
- Get honest answers to questions about why your HR department functions the way it does
- Have a better understanding of how the pandemic has impacted HR
- Debunk myths about modern HR with two HR leaders at the forefront of it
- Be given a framework to re-think the field of HR
- Get a better understanding of why there’s a movement towards people operations vs traditional “HR” or “human capital management” (HCM)
