This session helps attendees with tangible, ready to implement solutions, to help HR leaders better articulate, influence, and deliver the Strategic Value their department contributes to the C-Suite in a post-COVID-19 world.  It is not news that HR leaders have often struggled to justify their strategic contributions to the enterprise and the C-Suite. This is truer than ever due to the pressures imposed by COVID-19 and the creation of a remote work revolution.  How can they transform from having a primary task-oriented, cost-centre approach to driving value and harnessing the limitless human potential within their department and across the organization? Using a case-based approach, this presentation examines three companies that have leveraged solutions to overcome the six critical themes facing HR leaders globally in a post-COVID world.
