What Every HR Professional Needs to Know About Business Strategy

Business strategy is the foundation on which human capital strategy is built. It drives how you plan, acquire, engage, and develop talent in your organization.

Can you answer "yes" to every one of these questions?

  • Do you understand your organization’s business strategy?
  • Do you know what problem your company solves for your customers?
  • Can you describe what differentiates you from competitors?
  • Are you able to confidently discuss this with your HR colleagues, business partners, and leaders?
  • Most importantly, do you understand your business strategy well enough to align your human capital strategy in ways that will accelerate your business results?
