Financial Statements are often referred to as the “language of business”; they reflect the financial effects of business transactions and events of a given company.  Today’s competitive landscape demands that HR Professionals understand the basic concepts of financial statements and how their decision making impacts a company’s financial health.


Do you have to be a CPA to possess financial acumen?  No, but your basic understanding of financial statements will position you to better communicate important HR data, spot industry trends, and to become fluent in the “language of business".


In this session, you will learn about, and better understand how your actions impact the following financial statements:

1.    Income Statement

2.    Retained Earnings Statement

3.    Balance Sheet

4.    Statement of Cash Flows
