LINKING HR WITH YOUR ORGANISATION´S BUSINESS STRATEGY
There are clear drivers linking HR with your organisation’s overall business strategy. There exists an increasing need to ensure HR acts as a true strategic business partner in order to gain competitive advantage. The need to understand the link between successfully aligning HR to your business strategy is evident.

PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT
Measurement is vital to understanding the efficiency and success of your current systems and to identifying which areas need improvement.
However, discovering a tool to enable you to accurately measure the success of your systems & processes is often hard to find.


IMPROVEMENTS TO YOUR HR SYSTEMS
It is imperative to continually seek improvements to your HR systems. The latest issues that face HR Directors in this field include how to address the issues that are faced through automation, how to maintain the continuous improvement of the system, and how to develop e-HR. It is possible to review best practice recommendations to illustrate examples of successful implementation.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT
The only constant is change! And nowhere is the change happening faster than at the executive level.
In many countries reform programmes are acting as a catalyst for improving standards of public and private sector performance, decentralisation of power and budgets, and greater Flexibility in managing
human resources.
A sound framework for change initiatives, clearly setting out expected achievement at all levels and accompanied by a clearly stated strategy for Implementing change is therefore essential for all modern public and private sector organisations. .


ADAPTING ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE TO MEET BUSINESS OBJECTIVES
When an organisation goes through the process of organisational change, it is important to meet your business needs by adapting the culture within it. It is important that employees remain engaged and buy in to the internal brand.


OPTIMISING THE CAPABILITY OF YOUR WORKFORCE
As organisations have responded to business changes, and are developing HR to achieve operational excellence, there is a clear need for emphasis to be placed on workforce capability.
This conference will explore the best practice methods of evaluating & measuring workforce capability.

HR TRANSFORMATION
The benefits to an organisation of successfully transforming its HR function are clear.
In order to maximize the benefit of such transformation, it is key for organisations to evaluate the value of their systems. This provides a means by which the system can be continually monitored and evaluated.
