Connection to Others

Connection to Others provides important guidance for how the HR Chief can connect the work of the HR department with other departments across the district.  This section provides both a theory about the importance of connecting the work as well as ways to accomplish this.

A significant number of districts reported seeing great improvement around the role of HR in the district, in terms of both relationships with other departments and HR's position as a strategic department within the district.
