Start 2017 with an HR Fitness Plan

Well, 2017 is upon us and people are talking about New Year’s resolutions. We have a new year, new laws beginning and a new president about to take office.  2017 will be a year of change, but as organizational leaders, we have to be nimble and able to shift and adjust as our businesses are changing all the time.  That’s why it is so important to have a strategic roadmap that includes a Continuous Improvement Plan.

In my recently released eBook, “The Road to Talent Management – A Journey to HR Excellence,”    I help readers understand the discipline it takes to find operational excellence within their organizations.   It takes strategic planning and now is a great time to do that!  You have a fresh new calendar and employees and team members have fresh perspectives for the New Year after taking some time off during the holidays.  So pull out that list of what you wanted to accomplish last year.  Dust it off and start putting your plan together!


If you’re stuck, and you need an infusion of ideas on how to get going, spend an hour with me listening to the replay of The Journey to HR Excellence webcast where you’ll learn how to:

  • Design an HR roadmap in sync with your organization’s Mission, Vision and Values
  • Develop a business case that gains executive buy-in and budget approval
  • Align your efforts with business outcomes, proving the value of your HR efforts

So many of us start new fitness programs in January each year. Think of this as your “HR fitness” plan.  At the end of the webcast, you can download the HR Assessment worksheet  and see how well you’re doing.

We all know that diets don’t work – you have to change your habits.  So let us help you change the way you do business and transform your organization into a lean, mean, productivity machine!

Who will be on the 2017 list of best places to work?  Make sure YOU’RE on that list!

I wish you a healthy, happy and productive New Year!


Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.

We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence,

but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.

We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
