What's your moral compass as an HR leader?

HR leaders often have to walk that fine line between serving the CEO and representing the workforce. And sometimes the truth might not be what your CEO wants to hear

What's your moral compass as an HR leader?

An expert told HRD not long ago that to be successful HR leaders have to stick to their moral standpoint – be clear about your own values and what you stand for. But be subtle about how you get the message across.

It might be easier said than done. However, Andrea Thompson, HR Director - Health, AsPac, Serco, will be at the HR Summit Perth this June to share her tips on just that.

In the session “Being a frank and fearless adviser in the C-Suite”, she will explore the role of the HR Director as the honest truth-teller in a leadership team and discuss:

  • Being cross-functional and commercially savvy
  • Keeping it real - having courageous conversations in the c-suite
  • Balancing the benefits of achieving consensus with the dangers of 'group think'
