SESSION_TITLE:Selling HR
Description:Just because HR offers and manages products and services to a captive audience doesn’t mean we don’t have to sell. Like cars, cookies and blockbuster movies, HR is competing for mind share. With employees stretched thin, how do you get them to focus on HR programs and services that are meant to improve their work-life experience? We'll explore the answer to this question and others throughout this session.
