Project Management
for Human Resources Professionals

Why is there a need for a Workshop on Project Management for HR Professionals?

The Human Resources function operates at a strategic level as a full business partner in achieving an organization's strategic plan. Like all other professions, new business competencies are needed for Human Resource Professionals to deal with major program and organizational changes brought about by restructurings, reengineering, downsizing, as well as ongoing changes in revising and updating human resource programs. The human resource function is expected to accomplish more with fewer resources. Examples of human resource projects include new initiatives or changed programs such as: large scale recruitment and/or downsizing; total rewards, succession planning, leadership development, incentive compensation, performance management, employee and executive compensation, job evaluation, health and safety, dealing with human resource implications of mergers/acquisition/divestitures and a wide range of other human resources areas.
