We really can’t believe it’s May already! In a parallel non-lockdown universe, several HR peer group events would have happened by now.
Despite the challenges these strange times bring, we’ve found video conferencing so easy to use and a great way to engage with colleagues, clients, candidates and suppliers. So, for the time being the group is moving to Zoom.
Allowing more flexible working, improving processes to reduce environmental impact, appreciating the value of spending quality time with people, but being more prudent about unnecessary business travel.
If you’re not familiar with our HR Peer Group, here’s a breakdown of how they work and what you’ll gain from attending…
HR Peer Group is a chance to talk about topical business subjects with other local business people – your peers!
Discussing, asking questions, exchanging experiences and being able to learn from each other’s lessons is invaluable. Here’s an idea of questions and discussion points from previous sessions:
Chaired by the Wote Street People team, we select a pre-chosen subject for debate. During the 1-hour meeting, everyone can share advice and scenarios about how to deal with challenges or opportunities.
“Managing people in a business environment can be complex. I am the HR department where I work. HR Peer Group is like an extended team offering support and guidance. Equally it’s rewarding to be able to return the favour when I can offer expertise to other attendees.”
A closed and confidential environment, the discussion group is free of charge to attend and whilst new connections can be made, it’s not a networking group.
To gain most value from attending your role will involve managing or supporting people.
You could be a HR Manager, a solicitor or run your own business in Basingstoke or nearby.
“Peer members often say to me that the benefit they get out of attending is the ability to talk openly and honestly with people in the same boat”
