Businesses today rely on HR Professionals for expertise and insight into critical decisions like staffing and leadership development. In order to do this well, HR Professionals need to have the business and financial skills to make informed decisions and understand how they impact the organization.

Financial Literacy provides the foundation for making the connections between strategic objectives and operational realities of an organization.  With these skills, HR Professionals can add tremendous value to their organizations and influence decision making.
