New technologies, such as the cloud, social media and data analytics, can help enable transformation, though it is people who deliver it. As a result, HR leadership is moving to centre stage, as the new opportunities to create value for the organisation begin to be seized.
Priorities now coming to the fore for many HR leaders, include: identifying where added-value can be delivered now; anticipating future strategic needs; acting as a trusted advisor to the CEO; engaging with other senior leaders; navigating and embedding change; achieving a balance between operational and strategic HR; and harnessing new technologies that underpin many of these new opportunities.
The HR Leadership Exchange is a networking event for those needing to keep abreast of developing HR trends and innovations and who value opportunities to share best practice with peers and to conduct pre-arranged meetings with selected suppliers.
The programme is focused on the challenges involved in transforming HR and delivering successful initiatives in areas such as: talent management, staff engagement; leadership development; and business insight.
With a format of roundtable discussion groups, pre-arranged meetings and supplier-led workshops, each participant creates a tailored networking programme to reflect their own particular interests and objectives.
The objective is to enable all participants to take-away practical new ideas as to how they can push forward HR transformation within their own organisation and learn from, and where appropriate, replicate successful initiatives. Participants invariably find that the experience and peer interaction to be very valuable, both in terms of gaining knowledge and new perspectives, as well as strengthening their professional network and also gaining CPD credits.
In an increasingly digital world, face-to-face networking becomes ever more important. The HR Leadership Exchange offers a valuable opportunity to share best practice with peers and benefit from the experience of others involved in HR transformation.
