Are you tired of ...

…. having to fix people problems that could have been prevented?

…. being called in to “take care of the HR stuff’ after the plan has been decided on?

…. always being designated to plan the office parties?

HR’s Silent Struggle


Sr. Business Executive

HR has experienced serious declines in perceived effectiveness post-COVID. According to the McLean & Company 2023 HR Trends Report, only 40%, not even half, of non-HR professionals perceive HR as Highly Effective overall. 

Even in this environment of unprecedented change, HR is often not invited to the table where significant strategic decisions are being made. The credibility required to influence the direction of the organization is often missing. 

Yet, as companies struggle to successfully navigate the Future of Work, HR’s role is critical to lead organizations through the uncertainty of what’s to come.

How does HR get that strategic seat at the table? And when you pull up, how do you show up in ways that strengthen your influence and impact? 

It’s Time to Change the Game

Stop feeling undervalued, overlooked, and overwhelmed!
