HR Works: How Can HR Truly Impact The C-Suite? A Q&A with Dave Ulrich


HR execs are getting better and better at the basics of HR management and many have also improved at the strategic level. Dave Ulrich, the man some call the “father of modern HR,” joins us on HR Works: The Podcast for Human Resources to discuss the roles and skills HR executives must assume and acquire in order to both earn a proverbial ‘seat at the table’ AND have a significant impact once they have that seat.

He says HR execs must be credible activists, strategic positioners, and paradox navigators—and he defines and explains the logic behind each term in this episode of HR Works: The Podcast for Human Resources. Dave, also known for backing up his recommendations with rigorous research and data—discusses the metrics and measurements that he recommends HR managers use when approaching the c-suite.
