Program Description

In a context of innovation and change, human resources directors face new challenges:

  • How to interact with the top management team as a strategic partner to improve results and develop the organization?
  • How to anticipate the future needs of companies in terms of Human Resources?
  • How to manage talents to develop teams of high potential among the new generations?
  • How to mobilize all the experience, intelligence and creativity of employees?
  • How to streamline the digital transformation of internal HRD processes?
  • How to rethink the training and development of employees given the evolution of online education and the impact of robotics and artificial intelligence?

We encourage participants to identify their strategic positioning as well as ways to leverage the results of their organization as a whole. The entire program is geared towards having real impact and aligning HRD with the business.
