Strategies and Tactics for HR Professionals

While business dynamics are disrupted due to public health concerns, leaders understand that rapid mid-term recovery and long-term growth depend on having the best people in key roles who will thrive and advance business objectives.

As leaders adjust talent strategies, innovative HR organizations are asking themselves (and their business partners) some tough questions.  In an effort to support our clients seeking guidance on these critical issues, APTMetrics will be addressing a range of topics and sharing our point of view, providing some insights, and offering practical tips here at Workforce 20NEXT.
