HR: The Evolving World of the “People” Business

Janie Warner, SHRM-SCP

VP/National HR Practice Leader

McGriff Insurance Services, Inc.

At one time, Human Resources was known as “Personnel”. Their primary purpose was to find applicants and shuffle the paperwork until they were hired and started to work. It was mostly considered a clerical role reporting to another department within the company. Since the 1950’s that role has changed, expanded and ultimately has become a vital strategic partner for most organizations. But “HR” is not finished evolving! The emphasis on the people side has been shifted to a greater focus on the risk exposure inherent in dealing with employees. HR managers/directors/executives are called upon more often to be the strategic partners needed to mitigate compliance risk and internal conflicts. As the pandemic has stretched out longer than anticipated, HR professionals have a unique opportunity to position themselves as part of the risk management initiatives for their employers.

This session will explore the history of personnel and HR management and discuss the current state of the HR profession. Additionally participants will take away the following:

1. Three ways to enhance the perception of the HR role within organizations

2. Three specific activities that will garner respect and inclusion among risk managers

3. Three areas of focus to better prepare for the continued evolution of the HR profession

Ideal for HR professionals at any level. Session is approximately 45 minutes in length.
