Driving business performance through improving HR positioning & strategic influence

Pre-Conference Workshop: 26th February 2019
Two-Day Conference: 27th - 28th February 2019

 
The HR Business Partner function is a growing need across New Zealand organisations, which has stemmed from bigger, more strategic goals in aligning business objectives with employees and executive management.
 
A business with a strategically positioned HR Business Partner acts on policies more effectively, solves problems quicker and is more receptive to change.
 
The Strategic HR Business Partnering conference will unlock practical strategies in a case study-led format to enhance your HR Business Partner’s reach of influence and solidify their impact to make your organisation thrive.
 
Pre-Conference Workshop | Tuesday 26th February 2019
Tailored to HR Business Partners’ growing roles within their organisations, this workshop will facilitate the attendant’s professional development to maximise their influence and build on key relationships business-wide. With emphasis on implementing communication strategies, the workshop will also focus on establishing and maintaining a genuine, trusting relationship as a coach and mentor across the business to ensure transparency between HR Business Partners, employees and employers. During the day, there will be scenario-based exercises and in-depth case studies to provide a hands-on approach and strategies for senior HR professionals to use to forge stronger relationships within their organisations.
