It's all HRs Fault Webinar

Despite being a trusted voice in the C-suite, HR is still viewed with distrust and outright disdain by many employees – the very people HR is there to support.

For many outside the profession, HR is perceived to be the reactionary enforcers, the bureaucrats and the right hand of senior leadership making and enacting ‘difficult’ decisions. They seem to exist only to serve the interests of the company’s leaders, and ultimately prioritising the needs of the company over the employee.

This poses a real problem for hard working HR teams. If employees view HR’s work with distrust and scepticism, enacting workplace strategies that create thriving business cultures can become borderline impossible and put HR’s new place in boardroom in jeopardy.

Ultimately, a poor perception of HR creates a barrier to their ability to effectively support and improve workplace environments. So, what are the core issues behind this widespread distrust of HR, and what can be done to change them?

In this webinar, we look to identify the core issues that continue to dog HR’s reputation and, perhaps most importantly, what can be done to change them and maintain HR’s standing in the C-suite.
