Workshop: Design Thinking for HR Leaders

HR is changing. The most valuable HR function has become one can improve the employee experience so talented people work at their most productive, and one essential tool HR can use for this is “design thinking”.

Design Thinking is a methodology used by designers to solve complex problems and find innovative solutions for clients. Rather than problem-focused, a “design mindset” is solution-focused, based in the experience of service users, and oriented towards action. 

This 2-hour session will equip HR Leaders to:

• Shift your mindset away from designing top-down, centrally distributed HR programs, to designing all HR programs with the employee at the centre.

• Create and communicate end-user driven solutions to HR problems or opportunities such as employee engagement, organisational design and attracting talent.

• Adopt the ‘Design Thinking Mindset’ with 8 mindset tools.

• Map the employment lifecycle from the employee’s point of view to improve all employee experiences.

• Reduce risk and accelerate learning through rapid testing and feedback loops.

• Find and reframe problems in a way that enables HR to develop a culture of innovation.
