HR in the new world - Build a talent led HR Strategy

Friday 16th September 2016, 9.00am - 4.30pm

De Vere Holborn Bars, Chancery Lane, London - £595.00

Recent praise for the event:

"The day has given me time to reflect and re-think many things, thank you" - Adrian B. HR Lead, UK Charity

"Brilliant day, really inspiring" - Abigail D. Head of HR, Financial Services Organisation


This will limit the success of both the organization and HR.  In this workshop we take a pragmatic approach to give you the tools and understanding to develop an HR strategy designed to succeed, engaging your people and helping to deliver organisational success in the short, medium and long term.

We will give you the skills and knowledge to design an HR strategy that fits your business and we will explore the type of HR support required to deliver it.  After all, organisations need to remain agile to succeed and HR needs to be able to match this agility within its own function, to enable it to drive and support change across the business. 



It may be a cliché, but for most organisations their people really are their biggest asset and an effective HR strategy is critical to organisational success and future sustainability.  Properly linked to the business plan, your HR strategy will enable you to work in partnership with other leaders in your organization, so the organisation can successfully achieve its ambitions and goals, and you can ensure that HR really adds value.

Strategies can be complex and over-engineered but in this workshop we debunk the myths around the subject and show you how to develop an effective HR strategy that is right for your organization.

All too often, the business and the HR strategy are not sufficiently aligned.
