2016 PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Welcome to another year of exciting programs with HR Strategy Forum! Our aim is to provide a forum for strategic HR leaders in California to learn about the latest research, trends and challenges in the industry and to help them engage in thought-provoking discussions with their professional peers.

Our programs this year focus on the new tools and processes being adopted by HR to improve the overall capabilities in today’s organizations. We will learn about up-to-date trends and best practices in people analytics, discover new models and frameworks for optimizing organizational design, explore a unique approach to executive development and hear about innovative ways to attract top talent. We round out the year by hearing from Eva Sage Gavin, former EVP, Human Resources and Corporate Affairs at Gap, and now Vice Chairman of the Aspen Institute's Skills for America's Future Advisory Board. She will tell us about CHREATE, a collaboration of HR leaders that looks at how HR must evolve to meet future challenges and has identified initiatives to accelerate that evolution.

When I moved to the Bay Area seven years ago, I was looking for a professional organization where I could engage with other HR leaders on the current challenges of organizations, the workforce and the HR profession. A friend introduced me to HR Strategy Forum, and I was immediately hooked. I was impressed at the quality of programs and the strategic level of conversation. When I attend events now, not only do I look forward to learning a great deal of listening to some amazing speakers, but I especially look forward to meeting up with good friends and colleagues I met along the way and new friends that I've met at HRSF meetings. 

If you’re looking for a community or place of HR leaders to exchange ideas on our ever-evolving profession, then I recommend HR Strategy Forum.

I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming programs, and on our website and social media sites! 

All the best,

Paula
