    “How HR must build a cohesive team in order to strategically work with other organizational stakeholders”

    By Paula Bradison

    As a life-long Alaskan, Paula has committed her entire professional career to helping develop professionals in the workplace.  Beginning in the healthcare industry, she learned early on the benefits of a strong work ethic and willingness to ask for guidance.  Through these experiences in 2010 she decided to take her skill set “on the road” to assist business owners and key stakeholders in developing their businesses.

    She graduated from High School in Wasilla, Alaska, and continued her education at Northern Arizona University where she enjoyed a semester abroad studying at the University of London, through the London School of Business.  Returning to Alaska she achieved her Small Business Administration degree at the University of Alaska Anchorage.  Paula’s real education however began when her boss and mentor started working with her to develop a local doctor’s office from a one physician practice into what become one of Alaska’s largest and best Orthopedic clinics. She was able to take lessons learned from that experience, and put it to good use several times following for other practices.

    Starting in 2010, Paula has turned her attention to diversifying her experience in a multitude of industries. She has conducted multiple training seminars, coaching sessions, operational/financial controls assessments, facilitation, board development and business planning. Her straightforward and honest approach to business provides a practical approach to complex issues.



    In many organizations HR can be considered an island of “feel good,” and viewed by some C-Level professionals as an area of necessity with little impact on production and the bottom line.  HR finds themselves in contrast to the organization even though they are often the most keenly aware of the mission, vision and goals of the entire organization.

    In this presentation we will talk about putting the strategic vision in unison with a common sense approach to team building so that HR is a known supporter of the overall goals of the organization while being an advocate of the workforce.

    Building relationships at the top of the organization is key to having day to day required activities supported.
