TUFF Supports Higher Education Through Forum: The Critical Role of Strategic HR (Part One of Four)

By May 21, 2020 May 22nd, 2020 No Comments
On March 6, 2020, many of us were faced with personal and professional circumstances that even the best planning could not have adequately prepared us to navigate. The Coronavirus era brought about immediate and widespread disruption, but it also created an unprecedented opportunity to be proactive. On Wednesday May 20th, our friends at The Chronicle launched a four-part virtual forum series, supported by The University Financing Foundation, that will focus on several key topics that will help you identify the steps that you can take now to prepare for a brighter future. The first session addresses how to create strategic HR initiatives to help the entire university deal with this unprecedented challenge. A few of the key topics will include:
 
1. Developing a robust communication strategy
 
2. How to use strategic HR to cope with the rapidly evolving business model of higher education
 
3. Leveraging the inertia of Covid-19 to make strategic decisions that will drive institutional stability
