Introduction

Organizations that are successful at strategy have mastered certain skills and all of them relate directly to the competencies and responsibilities of human resources. As a result, human resources must be aware of what value it creates, how it creates value and what interests affect and are affected by HR activities.

Since HR has a unique cross-functional and global perspective of the organization’s most critical asset-the knowledge, skills and abilities of its workforce-HR leaders can create value by consulting and advising on aligning workforce assets with strategic demands. HR can also apply value chain analysis to its own business, identifying cost centers, its core competencies and activities that may be candidates for outsourcing.

The training course will focus on why HR should become a strategic partner, how HR can become a strategic partner and, more importantly, how do we change the HR function to better support the business objectives and become a true “business partner.”

This training seminar will highlight:

  • The argument for strategic partnering; scanning the environment, identifying the challenges, focusing on continuous improvement
  • How to prepare the current workforce for the future of work and identify the workers of the future
