Blog Post created by sara.marchionda on Dec 7, 2016

How can HR become a valuable business partner, central to strategy discussions? It’s all part of HR transformation. Many obstacles get in the way of HR success: reorganizations, M&A, talent shortages, budget pressures, employee demands, and disruptive new technologies.


Jai Shah, Managing Partner Product Innovation and Development with Hula Partners; Bruce Shaffer, Vice President Human Resources with OneSubsea and Dave Holberry, Engineering Director with OneSubsea provided their perspectives and real world experience in the keynote at the WorkforceNEXT Fall Energy Summit last month, Aligning HR with Business Strategy - Business Drivers for Competency Management, provided real solutions.


The information-packed slides from their presentation are available for viewing on our WorkforceNEXT Speaker Deck:

  • Developed complementary processes and tools to help the business select, engage, develop, recognize and retain engineering talent (ROADS initiative)
