Explore how our carefully crafted program content can help you build the skills to become a progressive, tech-savvy, and performance driven HR leader.

Work is changing, worker demographics are changing, and the workplace itself is changing. Together, these three forces are impacting organisations like never before. But for organisations to transform and adapt to modern realities, HR must play a crucial role in leading change.

No HR leader, however knowledgeable and capable, can perform effectively in isolation. The key to success is the ability to earn the trust and confidence of business leaders. Without this essential ingredient, all HR initiatives are destined to fail. How can such confidence be won and reinforced over time? The secret lies in reinventing yourself to become a trusted advisor.

Now that you have earned a seat at the table, what elements of talent strategy should you evangelise? Today’s landscape offers a baffling array of HR ‘solutions’ competing for leaders’ attention. Should your team focus on formulating succession plans, creating leadership pipelines, performance management, people cost optimisation or the use of AI in HR? This module helps you make sense of the strategic options and navigate a way forward for your organisation.

Organisational Culture is often decisive when it comes to attracting talent and outperforming the competition. But most assume that it cannot be changed because “that’s just the way we do things around here”. Nevertheless, our organisational values, expectations and practices are never static. This module investigates how the organisational culture itself can be shaped and what levers are available to continue evolving it in the right direction.

The faster the world changes, the quicker employees must reskill and upskill to keep up with new requirements. But organisations struggle to keep pace and find the costs difficult to justify. This module focuses on how to create learning environment that is aligned to business objectives, focused on relevant competencies, well-integrated into daily life at work and sought after by employees and managers alike. It also explains the science of learning analytics and how to demonstrate ROI from learning.

Often, HR gets blamed for rigidly implementing legacy policies with no consideration for how the organisation and outside world are changing. But today’s modern employees demand agility in the way HR itself is managed. They also seek to play a part in shaping and influencing the policies that impact them. This module explores ways for HR to continuously improve and adapt to meet tomorrow’s needs today.
