Roundtable – Monetize HR

This week on the roundtable we will be joined by Elisa Garn VP, Thought Leadership & Brand Marketing GBS Benefits, Inc. and Human Experience Evangelist.  She’s going to tackle one of the biggest challenges of our profession- the cost of HR.

Through the evolution of our profession, we’ve always been viewed as (expensive) overhead. But what if we could change that? Is there a way to monetize HR and talent functions to show profitability and even create a new revenue stream within your business? Elisa will share 2 separate examples of companies who have done just that.

We will discuss:

  1. How do you elevate the role of HR within the business?

  2. Does your department have its own P&L statement?

  3. What is the value of creating collaborative cohorts within your area and/or industry?

  4. What’s the most expensive function in recruiting?

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.


Elisa has over 15 years in HR and recruiting.  She is the Executive Director for Utah SHRM, Co-Founder DisruptHR SLC and currently VP Thought Leadership and Brand Strategy for a large benefit broker based in Salt Lake City.
