Event description

Description

Challenging the HR function - is it still fit for purpose or even needed at all?

Earning the right to be a valued part of the business - Can we? Should we?

Developing an HR model that actively supports strategy - what does that really mean?

Knowing the right questions to ask - and giving the right answers

In this session Diane will challenge some basic HR practices and argue that many HR functions are trapped in old thinking that is marginalising them for being true business partners. She will explore some alternative models for HR and give some examples from her own experience of where some commonly accepted HR practices have been turned on their head, and in doing so, not only increased the credibility of the HR team but also had a positive, tangible impact on business outcomes.

Come at 6.30pm for drinks (cash bar) and snacks. The session with start at 7pm and will run for approximately an hour with time for questions and discussion.
