Taking Care of Business

September 29, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The reinvention of HR is a common headline in many business publications today. The most vocal critics say that HR leaders are too administrative and lack vision and strategic insight. As an HR leader-turned-business leader, Ginger King will share insights from her experience on how HR leaders can align themselves with business outcomes, diagnose problems, and take actions that directly impact the success of the business. Participants will discover how to articulate the value HR can provide, develop business acumen, and more effectively “take care of business”.

Learning Objectives:
  • Articulating the value of HR to the business
  • Acquire business knowledge
  • Develop financial acumen to communicate financial benefits
  • Understand how to remove barriers that limit the impact of HR management

About the Speaker

Ginger King
Ariens Specialty Brands

Ginger King’s sole focus has always been on taking care of business, regardless of her title or role. With 17 years of experience in Human Resources, Ginger worked her way from HR intern to HR Vice President, attributing her success to the ability to understand the business, translate issues and opportunities into actions, and address those issues with talent-related initiatives.

Making the transition to general management in 2015, she took on her current position as President – Ariens Specialty Brands. In this role she is tasked with leading a multi-channel business through digital transformation for Ariens Company. Now, as an executive manager, she regularly draws on lessons learned from her HR experience.

Ginger gained a wide range of experience working at privately-held, family-owned businesses based in Wisconsin, including Kohler Company and Ariens Company. A continuous learner, she used every tactical HR assignment over the course of her career as an opportunity to improve her business acumen by partnering with the specific business manager to provide HR solutions and support for strategic goals. With a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management and an MBA in Manufacturing and Service Operations, she made sure she grounded herself in both perspectives.
