  SUMMARY: How can we ensure that HR and business goals are aligned to pull in the same direction? How can HR professionals translate employee-related polices into strategic business practice? We can start by understanding the critical conversations and components for aligning HR and business strategy, translating HR language into business speak, and exploring the business case for addressing employee needs. In this way, HR doesn’t just align with business – it becomes a clear, competitive advantage to meeting business needs, retaining top talent, and planning for the future. For example, we’ll explore the idea that HR must be able to communicate that people issues are not towards the bottom of the list of an organization’s keys to success and competitive advantage. Understanding and identifying the right talent is central to ensuring organizations have employees that demonstrate the desired, mission critical behaviors that contribute to business strategy. Twenty-first century talent management can, and does, speak to business profit with significant ROI where people are the “backbone” of the organization!
