HR Town Hall introduces strategic plan and provides leadership development

On Wednesday, May 16, human resources professionals from across Ohio State gathered for a town hall meeting to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, focus on the strategy for the years ahead and engage with a leader-development expert.

Susan Basso, senior vice president for talent, culture and human resources, and the HR senior leadership team shared the 2018-2023 Ohio State Human Resources strategic plan and outlined its three strategic focus areas: HR excellence, talent management and total rewards. The plan, which serves as the roadmap to deliver transformative core processes and HR service, also includes five core foundations themes: change management, communication, compliance/management of risk, culture, and diversity and inclusion.

Additionally, inspirational speaker Becky Halstead, a retired brigadier general with 27 years of service in the U.S. Army, presented leadership principles and encouraged the HR community to reflect on how they lead, experience change and create a positive culture. As she writes about in her book, Becky told attendees that everyone is a leader and must first lead themselves and set an example.

As progress continues on the HR strategic plan, information will be available on the HR website. The full presentation from Susan Basso and the leadership team can also be viewed online.
