Successful HR Business Partnering Conference 2014
Tuesday, 18 November 2014 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm£349.00 – £399.00
Become a true partner and demonstrate the direct correlation between HR and business success
To become a true partner to the business you must understand current and future business and customer needs. To achieve this, HR must sit at the heart of the organisation and strategically shape the way people are managed. This conference will look beyond the Ulrich model and will examine how strategic HR continues to evolve for business success.
What this event will do for you:
Coffee and registration
Introduction and opening address by conference chair
Jon Ingham, Human Resources and OD Consultant, Strategic Human Capital Management
HR’s role in delivering business success
Graham Salisbury, Head of HR, ActionAid UK
Bringing common sense back to HR
We love a fad in HR and dress this up into lots of ‘clever’ HR topics and initiatives, we’ve created a whole language around HR and we drive activities which may or may not take the business forward.
People are not machines but over time our people processes become mechanised and a ‘machine’ starts to manage our people. The unintended consequence of this is that common sense is eroded from the management of people. How we make decisions about what we do in our business, where we spend our money, how we manage and interact with our people all gets absorbed within this machine. Technology is a critical part of this in terms of the HR systems and processes.
