Course Introduction

Formulating and Implementing a Business-Centric HR Strategy

The people management (HR) function remains under pressure to be more strategic and act as a business partner rather than just a simple administrator. Even though tremendous progress has been made in this aspect, some human capital management professionals are still unsure of how to play a more strategic role, or even what it really means to be strategic.

Led by Claudia Cadena, founder and principal consultant, this masterclass will provide you with knowledge, understanding, skills and tools to formulate and implement a business-centric human capital management strategy. Claudia brings with her more than 28 years of experience in human capital management and development in corporations across multiple industries such as retail and investment banking, airlines, oil and gas, and telecommunications.

Case studies and simulation methodologies will be used to drive learning, understanding and self-realisation. Participants are required to read case studies provided in advance, prior to attending the masterclass.
