About the course

All successful organizations generate value for their stakeholders. They understand the needs of their stakeholders, the external and internal environments in which they operate and how change will impact their organization.

In order for the human resource function to provide value to their stakeholders, we must become strategic, we must build partnerships with internal and external stakeholders and we must align our products and services to the strategic orientation of the organization.

In other words, we must become a strategic partner.

This Oxford seminar will focus on how to become a strategic partner; what steps a human resource department must take in order for them to contribute, at a high level, to the success of the organization.
