Event description

Every business experiences growing pains, and nowhere is it felt more keenly than in HR. Whether you need to bring in new talent for a big contract, or develop your existing people; there's no denying that it can be a tough job.

In this workshop with HRML, we will look at three main 'people' growing pains for businesses:

RUSHING RECRUITMENT: the pressure is on and people are needed fast. What can we do to make sure that nothing goes wrong?

SQUARE PEGS, ROUND HOLES: as organisations grow, so do the people within them. Most of the time. What can we do when difficult decisions need to be made?

STRUCTURE, WHAT STRUCTURE: fast-growing businesses don't always think about structuring themselves for growth, which can hold them back. How can we avoid this?
