HR Influencers Club

As an ambitious and successful HR Professional of an established organisation, the challenges of navigating the ever more complex HR challenges have never been greater. The pressures to succeed in your role as an HR professional continue to grow alongside the magnitude of an ever changing business landscape. The HR Influencers Club is here to help you continue to grow and develop your skills as an HR professional and manage the ever changing world of HR, keeping abreast of important legal changes and emerging HR trends and best practices.

Who is the HR Influencers Club for?

The HR Influencers Club is an “invitation only” club specifically designed for ambitious HR professionals in an HRD, HRM, HRBP, Talent Management or People and Culture role within an established business. Despite previous successes in your HR career, you’ll be acutely aware of the increasing;

  • magnitude and complexity of HR decisions, particularly strategic ones
  • stakeholder pressure for bigger and better HR results year after year
  • Competitive and volatile economic and political influences impacting the world of work and therefore the HR profession
  • threats to the traditional, tried and tested HR approach

Our HR Influencers Club is specifically designed to help you navigate the changing and challenging world of HR. You’ll be part of a confidential advisory group made up of your peers from other organisations, as well as our experienced HRD’s, Coaches and our employment law team at Freeths in Oxford.

Led by one of our team, you’ll work together at each meeting on a particular area or challenge within HR, where we will share our expertise, and the latest insights and trends to help you solve the more complex HR and people challenges in your business.
