Given how human capital is increasingly becoming a prime mover of enterprise valuation and a differentiator among competitors today, it is certainly not surprising to note that it is the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) whose job description bears the closest resemblance to that of a CEO in most organisations today. To thrive in this age of constant disruptions, CHROs must develop the agility that drive value for the organisation rather than merely focusing on the functional role of the HR department.
Designed exclusively for the top HR executives, the CHRO Course works towards defining the future of developing and executing human resource strategy in support of the overall business plan and strategic direction of the organisation. At this training, discussion and executive-level networking will allow participants to strategize new approaches that drive innovation and business success.
This course will also cover transformational change and technology innovations that improve business functions and increase collaboration across departments to solve organisational and operational issues. After the course, participants are expected to be familiar with and be able to develop human resource management standards that will increase their company’s productivity and long term success.
