Corporate resources have always been and will always be limited. Today is no different. CEO, CFOs and other C-suite leaders always have and always will make the decisions around where to spend and how to disburse fiscal resources. The key question for all HR professionals is, are you doing everything in your power to get the $$ you need to do the job that must be done to recruit and retain highly a highly motivated workforce? And, are you getting your fair share? Does the “squeaky wheel” win more of a share than might be necessary? Are appropriations going to the hot issues of the day like, security, R&D, product development, or customer services? Where does human capital fit into the picture in your company?

Participants in this session will hear from experienced HR leaders regarding how they approach their financial resources needs and, ultimately, how they win their fair share.

Discussions will include but not be limited to: presentation and communication skills; making the financial case; being outcome and output oriented; representation at the leadership table; and budgeting.
