Introduction & Course Overview

Lesson Content

Welcome. My name is Anna Samorukova. This course is designed for HR Professionals with no or limited financial background. We have all heard it “I am not a numbers person”. It is not because of our abilities to learn finance, but because of some experiences in the past with math or in a one-sided intimidating conversation with a finance expert. This course is designed for HR professionals to help you learn business and financial concepts in a simple and understandable way.

Our goal is for you to gain a better understanding of the business and financial concepts and enhance your business thinking that are at the foundation of becoming an effective business and strategic partner. After completing the class, you will be able to:

Explain where information on the financial statements comes from.

Interpret key sections on the financial statements including Sales, Expenses, Net Income, Cash, and Equity.

Enhance your business thinking.

Identify key drivers that impact an organization’s performance.

Understand how what you do in your role impacts an organization’s success.

So let’s get started!
