Leverage the talents of your HR team by ramping-up their strategic skills

According to a Roundtable research study, “Does HR need to be more strategic?”, HR professionals today feel stuck between a rock and a hard place; they are expected to be experts and drive results, yet their conversations about long-term strategy too often seem to die on the vine.

People are the core of any business, yet HR is still viewed by many as a mandatory function instead of a driver of success. How can HR professionals change this outdated view and kick start strategic conversations about ‘people’ with a long view for the organisation?

HR professionals are asking themselves how they can better connect with business leaders

In an interactive, hands-on workshop setting, we will teach you how to leverage your unique HR skill set and perspective to add the value you’re meant to add. Supporting you as agents of change, champions of people, change management and execution experts, facilitators and objective sounding boards to business partners.
