Workforce planning is a team sport and HR is often out of synch with other players. Unfortunately, the player HR is most often out of synch with is also one of the most important stakeholders: finance. HR tends to focus on “what is wanted” (in terms of talent) and finance focuses on “what can be afforded” (in terms of cost). In this HCI Keynote, Mark Berry of WorkInsights explains how HR can partner with finance to close these gaps and take a fact-based approach to workforce planning and talent strategy.
- Learning to overcome barriers of process, timetables, language that separate HR from finance.
- Identifying areas where HR can help finance and vice versa.
- Integrating HR and finance data to achieve a single version of the truth and using it to drive workforce planning and talent strategy.
