The Executive Buy-in Playbook: Getting C-Suite Support For Your Strategic HR Initiatives

HR leaders: are you being tasked with delivering more value to your organization than ever before, while facing new obstacles and economic circumstances that seem to change by the day? If so, you’re not alone. Too many HR leaders are being asked to do more with less—and without adequate support from their executive teams.

It’s time to change that.

By using data to demonstrate HR’s impact on key outcomes like employee performance, engagement, retention, and manager effectiveness, you can prove your team’s value to the business and earn the trust and support of company leaders.

In this playbook, we’ll walk you through different types of strategic HR investments, how to approach strategic conversations with the executive team, and which business outcomes to focus on. We’ll also provide an overview of the tools that can help you tie HR data to critical outcomes, and how to respond to some common objections to get the support you deserve.

What’s Inside:

  • Why strategic HR requires executive team support
  • How to speak the language of the business
  • Building your case with business outcomes
  • Using data to tell the story
  • How to overcome common objections to strategic HR investments
