Through a traditional lens, the role of marketing has been to drive new business, while the role of HR has been to recruit and retain personnel. But in today’s world, marketing and HR aren’t as separate as you might think, and some firms have started to embrace the idea that the relationship between these departments is underutilized. Rather than seeing these as two independent departments, it is critical to align marketing and HR department objectives with each other and the overall vision of the firm. From branding and communications to recruiting, training, and employee engagement, there are numerous areas that require the blending of marketing and HR strategy. This panel-style presentation will discuss ways marketing and HR can collaborate to drive culture and growth.
