This programme has been specifically designed for those HR professionals who operate at, or aspire to operate at, a senior level within their business, particularly those who work closely with senior and operational decision-makers.
The event focuses on the role of the HR manager with senior accountability and responsibilities for the effective deployment of the human resource, the most expensive asset within a business. Case study activities based on a business scenario will be included, encouraging participants to apply strategic thinking to the HR agenda, identifying potential, mitigating risk and planning for the future direction of the business. The knowledge, skills and behaviours required to act effectively at a senior level, including influencing and communicating with stakeholders on commercial aspects, are highlighted via the discussion exercises and the proposals made for the recommended strategy for the case study company. These exercises culminate in personal action plans that transfer the lessons learned to the situations of the participants attending, making the programme individually relevant and beneficial.
Highly participative throughout, the programme provides an opportunity to network with fellow professionals and to explore the changing role that is synonymous with seniority in the HR field. Attending this event is an invaluable use of a busy HR professional’s time.
