About the Course

The Covid Pandemic has shown that organisations need to be better at coping with unexpected change. Covid 19 and subsequent lockdowns produced sudden and dramatic effects that had to be responded to and managed.

When we reflect and examine it now, we can see that HR and HR practices were at the heart of this response to change. Whether it was the HR department having to find solutions and methods to manage redundancy and changing duties – requiring legal expertise or HR working on practices and strategies to retrain managers and staff in how to work remotely- and still achieve results. It was the expertise of HR that made the difference.

This interactive Strategic Change Management and HR training course will look at some of the HR Solutions and Strategies used. We will reflect upon how to successfully produce HR strategies for dealing with organisational change that help the organisation adapt and thrive. Combining an understanding of the process of Change and the practices and strategies that HR can offer – we can build a process to allow HR and the organisation to be ready for the next big change!
