About the course

Reimagining people leadership and HR systems for the post-pandemic world

The global pandemic has brought about a historic opportunity for enterprises to rethink how they manage human capital. Organisations have been forced to reconsider many workplace assumptions, interactions and processes - given the new imperatives of health and well-being, remote working, virtual teams, rapid growth of digital technologies and above all the ever-growing demands of getting the right skills and talent. People Managers and HR leaders have the onerous task of not only creating a safe workplace in the short term, but also redefining systems and processes around the most important asset of businesses: the human capital.

People and their performance are influenced by the firm culture, strategic leadership, HR processes, talent composition, digital interface, and structure. Leaders need to take a ‘Systems’ view of their human capital ecosystem and cannot afford to tinker with parts of it.
