3 day in-person class or 5 half-day online sessions

Offered in-person & online

Accredited by HRD Future & Course Trainer

Course Introduction

We have been living through unprecedented times, as countries, communities, companies and people have been affected by the impact of Covid 19 over the past two years. As a HR professional:

  • Do you need to build a HR strategy to support your changing business needs?
  • Is your HR strategy fit to meet the needs of the ‘new normal’ people expect from work?
  • Do you want to play a leading role in helping your business transform itself?

This course will help you address these questions and many others. Covid 19 has turned many things, we have taken for granted, upside down. Companies have struggled to cope during lockdowns and ever changing situations on the flow of goods and services. Businesses had to quickly adapt their working environments in factories, worksites and offices, resulting is greater health and safety and many people working from home. HR departments had a leading role in helping to facilitate these changes and their contribution has been widely recognized. Now companies are having to cope, with post Covid 19 challenges including shortages of skilled employees, supply chain challenges, and continued demand for homeworking to continue. Now more than ever HR can play a leading contribution to helping businesses transform themselves to meet these challenges.

This program will practically outline various approaches, tools and techniques, which can be adapted to consider the prevailing company culture, to help develop your HR strategy.

In terms of learning outcomes, you will be able to develop a HR strategy that will deliver to the business, while influencing management on the value of investing in people and the critical role that HR plays. We will also provide a guide on defining the financial\business impact of HR initiatives, so that you can build the business case and be more confident showing how HR can impact the bottom line.

Experiential Learning

The program will be practical in approach, we want to make this program participative so that we can address your learning outcomes from the program. To deliver this we ask all participants to identify their expectation from the program to make sure we deliver to your needs. You will also be asked to identify what you have learnt and what you will be taking away to implement in your business in the future, in terms of personal commitments to yourself and the rest of the group.

The program will have numerous exercises for participants to ‘try out’ many of the tools and techniques we will be sharing with you, so you can explore how they can help develop your HR strategy. There will be several case studies for participants to work through, to give you practical experience in developing a HR strategy.

We are happy for participants to share some details of their business and HR challenges to create an anonymous case study that we can work on to develop a HR strategy, during the program. We will make the company, the industry and the location anonymous so no one will know the company. Please contact us and we will get the trainer, Tom Raftery, to talk to you to help but the case study together.
