    Building a Business Case for HR Initiatives


    Rita Carson, SPHR, CPTD




    How many times have you had a great idea to make your HR department or whole organization run more efficiently? And of those times, how often did your great idea have a price tag that required buy-in from additional decision makers?

    This presentation will show you how to gain that buy-in by creating a compelling business case that explains the project benefits and goals, supporting data, and the proposed plan of action. Participants will walk through a case study, learn how to use crucial tools and templates, and leave ready to build their own business case.

      Learning Objectives

      Participants will be able to:

      • Recognize the need for a business case
      • Identify tools to analyze the current situation, understand influencing factors, and determine stakeholder needs and concerns
      • Distinguish elements involved in calculating ROI and other important success measures
      • List the steps to building a business case and options for presenting it

      Log in at 7:45 for the HR Improv Comedy Skit!

      This program is valid for 1.0 PDCs toward SHRM-CP® or SHRM-SCP® recertification.

      1.0 Credit approved through HRCI.
