Marvin Webb, senior vice president of finance and administration, Funders for LGBTQ Issues
Imagine working with all team members across the organization to build an improved personnel manual. The human resources team creates the survey and collects the data. All employees analyze the information and crowdsource the benefit improvements resulting in an enhanced personnel manual that is staff-driven meeting financial constraints.
Imagine working with all employees across the organization to build a better understanding of financial reporting. The finance team guides staff learning and development in financial education. Knowledge improvements result in more employee conversations around financial analysis.
Strategic finance reaches beyond routine Financial Accounting Standards Board updates, 990s, audits, and reporting. Strategic human resources reaches beyond routine HR compliance, onboarding, total compensation, and performance reviews. Coupled together, they can form a powerhouse creating a competitive advantage within any organization.
In this unprecedented time, finance and human resources professionals have added value like never before—navigating the racial justice uprising, the pandemic, personal protective equipment, and the Paycheck Protection Program. How do we maintain this moving forward? How do we use grace and rigor at this moment?
To enrich your added value, let’s review and discuss how your learning communities, learning stacks, and data demographics can transform your finance and human resources work into strategic partners within your organizations using grace and rigor.
