AgileHR Fundamentals – Learning Workshop
AgileHR is an overarching title describing future HR (Human Resources) and how to innovate the profession.
As technology drives an ever increasing need for speed and agility, the world of work is shifting. To remain relevant, HR needs to evolve.
AgileHR takes the software development mindset so prevalent in tech and start-up success stories and translates it into a people and culture setting. It moves beyond traditional HR ‘best practice’ and advocates an intimate partnership with your people and leaders, to co-create flexible, lean, real time, people-centred solutions.
AgileHR can help revolutionise results. However, it can be challenging for HR professionals to start working in this new way and step outside their ‘HR comfort zone’.
The AgileHR fundamentals workshop equips you with a toolbox of knowledge and skills that helps you implement and adapt AgileHR for your own team and/or organisation.
