People and their skills are vital for the success of an organisation. Human Resource Management (HRM) plays a critical role in ensuring businesses achieve strategic effectiveness by developing this resource.
This 3-day programme will enable experienced and inexperienced HR consultants, HR Practitioners, HR Managers or HR Assistants, as well as owners and staff of SMMEs, to become knowledgeable on a practical level in HR Management best practices in our new place of work.
This unique programme incorporates a few modules on important Labour Law matters and it aims to introduce delegates to the role of HRM within the context of business management and is of considerable benefit to anyone who is new to the HR role, or who needs more practical knowledge of HR Management in the organisation or who needs a refreshment on some best practices in the HR environment.
New Topic Added: 4th Industrial Revolution
- Our new place of work
- The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) & The HR Practitioner
- What does the 4IR mean for HR?
- Evaluating the impact of Artificial Intelligence
- The implications of 4IR for HR
Previous industrial revolutions have shaped human behaviour and the societies we live in – true then as it is today. These great periods of change have all come with a warning of a catastrophic impact upon employment.
Although this has so far not reflected our reality, we are facing a change on a scale we have never seen before. Research from the McKinsey Global Institute suggests that AI is contributing to a transformation of society happening ten times faster and at 300 times the scale, or roughly 3,000 times the impact of the Industrial Revolution.
The position HR practitioners find themselves in at the dawn of 4IR is unique in that it means they are on the frontline in advising organisations of the best way to address the forthcoming change and they are faced with executing a seismic shift in thinking, enterprise-wide, ripping up the rule book to enable organisations to thrive in this rapidly changing world.
