3rd Employee and Labour Relations Symposium

Employee & Labour Relations: A Legal and Practical Perspective

Organizations are facing dramatic changes, therefore it is interesting to note that the HR function in every organization has been challenged to become a more functional strategic role. HR professionals face the question of how they can play a more strategic role whilst remaining within the guidelines of legal and regulatory requirements.

In a bid to improve organizational agility and flexibility, College of Human Resource Management –CHRM a training affiliate of IHRM will be holding the 3rd Employee and Labour Relations Symposium from the Wednesday 15th-Friday 17th May 2019 at Lake Naivasha Resort themed: A Legal and Practical Perspective. This earns the IHRM members 6 CPD points. We will engage both Labour Law and Employee Relations experts drawn from both the Private and Public Sector to facilitate, engage as well as share experiences and case studies to our Delegates.

In the past, HR roles were primarily transactional in nature but today’s world requires the HR function that is insight driven yet aligned to the organization strategy. This presents a golden opportunity to boost their excellence with well-designed and practical trainings that aim at solving challenges arising for the new strategic Functional HR leader.
