Review the case entitled “HR in Small Business” at the end of Chapter 1 in your textbook. Brian Miller is taking over the top HR job at a company that has been moving fast without a strategic HR vision. In an initial post of at least 350 words and citing at least two required resources, develop and justify a plan that Brian could use to determine the strategic HR vision. In your plan, address the priorities Brian should establish in determining the direction of the HR department. Ensure that your plan includes each function of HR.
Guided Response: Answer any questions your instructor has about your initial post, and respond to at least two of your classmates’ initial posts. Each of your responses to your classmates should be at least 100 words in length. Share with your classmates how their plan aligns with or differs from the plan you provided. If you were in upper management and were presented with the plan developed in your classmate’s initial post, what questions or suggestions might you have?
