Market Value of HR Leadership

Catching up on my HR recertifications and listening to HR Leaders with Dave Ulrich was spot-on. Loved how he expressed how HR competencies matter & how we have to continue adding value. Also, the importance of being HR certified.

It’s important to continue building your skills—not because you have to but you need to in order to deliver the best business results for the stakeholders.

What’s the quality of leadership for your HR?
