The HR profession has always been one where Measurement is difficult and gathering Evidence is problematic!

This is the nature of the work we do but it was inevitable that the increasing demands and pressures placed on HR would eventually require the setting of internationally accredited standards - that time has now come. Dedicated HR practitioners will welcome this opportunity to enhance their own professional standing and provide further personal career development. This Workshop is the first to offer a comprehensive introduction to the development of universal HR Standards.

The institution that has taken on this task is the quality standards body ISO (International Organization for Standardization ) – a network of the national standards institutes of 164 countries – which is coordinating global efforts through its dedicated Technical Committee for Human Resource Management (TC260)

Masterclass Leader:
Paul Kearns, President, UK Mirror (TC260) Committee on HR Standards - British Standards Institute (BSI) and Author of “HR Strategy. Creating Business Strategy with Human Capital”
What are the benefits of Quality Standards?
Quality standards, particularly those around HR, demonstrate to your own staff and others that you are a good employer, and help you to recruit and retain employees and volunteers. Quality standards, some to a greater degree than others, demonstrate your corporate social responsibility, help you to adhere to legislation, best
practices and increase productivity. Quality standards indicate a minimum level at which your organisation is operating in various business and social areas.

By the end of the workshop you will:
• Be fully up-to-date with the latest developments in International HR Standards

• Be able to inform and educate your own Executive about the full implications that will stem from having to adhere to international HR standards
