During the 2-DAY Workshop, you will be introduced to key concepts followed by breakout sessions where you will apply the concepts to your organisation using the templates provided.

You will also be given a workbook for your “HR thoughts” using the same templates in the breakout sessions.

There will be group reviews for participants to challenge each other’s thinking.
