Simmons to address how HR can work hand-in-hand with executive leadership around the decision-making table

CHICAGO, IL — (June 18, 2018) — Maestro Health™, a leading all-in employee health and benefits company, today announced that Chief Human Resources Officer, Sheryl Simmons, will present on the topic, “Making a Case for the C-Suite: Why You Should Have a Seat at the Table,” at the SHRM 2018 Annual Conference & Exposition, taking place June 17-21, 2018 in Chicago, Ill.

“Employees are a company’s biggest and most important asset, but all too often valuable strategic insight is lost by not having human resources represented at the boardroom table,” said Simmons. “CHROs have unparalleled insight into an organization – they know what makes a company tick and have unique visibility into the core KPIs of a business’s success. Therefore, it is essential that HR leaders learn how to effectively communicate the measurable value this function brings to the organization. Doing so will help the entire c-suite understand how the CHRO supports goals and objectives in the areas of recruitment, retention, productivity, profitability and operational efficiency, among others.”

Attendees will learn the following:

–       Why HR needs a seat at the table: the importance of running HR like a business

–       How to translate the value of HR to the c-suite: using your ‘people data’

–       How to speak to each member of the c-suite

–       How to team up with the right partner who can offer you the best tools and tech needed to optimize  collaboration

Each year, the Society of Human Resources (SHRM) hosts its Annual Conference & Exposition to provide HR professionals with the tools and resources to implement successful HR practices.

Presentation Details:

·      Title: Making a Case for the C-Suite: Why You Should Have a Seat at the Table

·      When: Tuesday, June 19, 2018; 4-5:15 p.m., CDT

·      Where: S100 Ballroom

“It’s often said that mission, values and performance are less about what’s written on the walls and more about what happens in the halls,” added Simmons. “HR is responsible for organizing all functions of a company, translating those functions into people-friendly terms, and helping employees embrace a culture. CHROs are successful in fulfilling those responsibilities when they take the opportunity to dig into their ‘people data’ and use those insights to help the C-suite understand how business decisions are being felt across the organization and the degree to which they are effectively impacting the bottom line.”
