Strategic HR

The concept of strategic HR tends to draw quite a bit of criticism, often by people who do not understand what it means. Performed effectively, a strategic approach to HR can have a profound impact on the function's impact in an organisation, and looks very different to a more operational approach too. Strategic HR demands new tools and skills but above all else it requires a new perspective. This involves understanding that there is choice, HR can be performed in very different ways. Therefore, although there will always be a role for best practice, the key processes that will make the difference to your business are those you tailor for your business strategy, your type of organisation, your desired organisational capabilities and so on. Attend this seminar to develop a more strategic approach to your own, and your department's HR activities.
