My organization is restructuring. Human resources is currently a back-office/support function, but it is my intention to make it more strategic. During the next six months, I intend to: study our compensation and benefits (including health plans) to see if they are competitive; initiate a rewards program; develop assessments in line with corporate goals; introduce more comprehensive orientations; and assess training and development needs. How do I persuade our executive team to provide the budget and other resources needed to accomplish each goal?
