Raising the Bar for HR

presented by Scott Sherman


Too frequently, CEOs are disappointed in their HR people. Instead of finding sounding board, trusted partners, and value providers, they are finding process-oriented generalists. In this interactive workshop, Scott Sherman (EVP of HR at Ingram Micro) will lead a discussion on what organizations and their executives need from HR. He will share his experience of how he has become a trusted strategic partner for his organization’s leaders, how he has elevated the role of HR within Ingram Micro, and how you can do the same. This workshop will conclude with helping attendees identify whether or not they possess the core skills necessary for raising the bar of HR.

This presentation will help HR professionals develop in the following areas:

  1. HR Leadership – Contribute to the development of the organizational strategy and planning
  2. HR Influence – Establish and manage effective relationships with key stakeholders to influence organizational behavior and outcomes
  3. HR Strategy – Design and manage effective change strategies to align organizational performance with the organization’s strategic goals
