In this interactive workshop, we aim to explore strategies to maximize the potential of human capital to better contribute to the success of business organizations. In the quest for optimizing the human capital potential, we will analyze current workforce capabilities, identify future needs, and outline potential strategic initiatives towards enhanced work performance.

Through discussions, exercises, and case studies, attendees will learn about how to align HR capabilities with business objectives at any level of the organization.

Throughout the workshop, participants will seek to recognize the alignment between workplace practices and corporate strategic objectives. They will learn about internal and external labor markets for their organizations, forecast human capital needs, identify potential challenges, discuss work design, and generate innovative solutions to complex human capital challenges. Finally, we will discuss high performance work practices that allow better utilization of human capital.

Participants will learn how to think strategically about the most valuable asset in organizations – people. They will also recognize the impact of HR practices that are aligned with the business needs and organizational strategies.

Participants will learn how to forecast human capital needs and match these needs to the needs of the business in the short and long term. Participants will also learn strategies of how to successfully utilize human talent in their workplaces.
