Proving Value: How HR Wins Corporate Buy-In

Guest Speaker: Chris Courneen, Global Head of HR, MSI

In early 2021, we hosted MSI’s Global Head of HR, Chris Courneen, for an HR at the Table episode on what can happen when a CEO and HR are aligned. We took things a step further with Chris Courneen in Episode 6 of Season 2 of HR at the Table. We built on our previous discussion and explored how HR and Talent Acquisition professionals can prove undeniable value to their organizations by gaining corporate and executive buy-in. We also explored:

  • The importance of HR business partnerships
  • Best practices for aligning HR with business goals
  • Measuring ROI on people-centric initiatives
  • How HR can change the way people think about HR in business
