According to Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Business Acumen is the third most important behavioural competency needed by leaders to succeed, trailing only Leadership and Ethics.
Many HR professionals today embrace Business Acumen as a core driver for value-laden business results because it enables advanced decision making skills. Business acumen ensures that HR professionals are able to understand, interpret and effectively deal with business situations as they arise.
As an HR professional can you stand in front of the organisation/board and discuss the numbers of the business? Can you talk about your business’s products and services to a potential client for 20mins? Are you financially literate in respect to your company’s revenue, profit & losses? Do you know who your competitors are in the marketplace? Or along the supply chain?
If you can’t answer these questions convincingly, you need to attend our upcoming webinar - Business Acumen for HR Professionals - More than just the Business Knowledge / HR Skills are not Enough - Business Acumen for HR Professionals.
In the free webinar, we’ll show you how to go about, uncovering and understanding the answers to these questions.
Our practical approach during this webinar would provide you with insights that are key to developing meaningful, performance-driven, and critical skill sets businesses and their people need.
Business acumen is not an innate skill or ability. You can build this competency just like the very best HR professionals.
