Lean for HR: Boosting HR’s Contribution to the Bottom Line

APPROVED By HRCI for 1.0 General Credit Hours

When HR professionals are asked how they can contribute to bottom line profitability, many reply, “by cutting cost.” However, there is more than one category of cost that encumbers most companies. “Lean” practices can eliminate other costs that impact profit, such as extraneous process, production, inventory and duplication, non value creation waste, time and money.

For product and service sectors alike, attendees will learn how to better distinguish between “value creation” and “waste” from the customer’s (internal and external) perspective. They’ll come away with the knowledge to apply a simple and proven five-step Lean System that improves workplace organization, process flow, time cycles, team productivity, customer loyalty and profit.
