08 May - 09 May 2016  United Arab Emirates, Dubai


  • Introduction

    Organizations haven’t always adequately invested in their HR talent. With changes afoot in the world of work, this investment has never been more of a priority. Mercer can help. With HR specific assessment tools, trainings on trending topics such as “telling a story with data,” and strategic partnering, Mercer leads HR professional development to equip your HR department with powerful new skills. 

  • Overview

    Strategic Partnering for HR (SP4HR) is a two day experiential learning program created by Mercer in response to the growing need to support HR leaders to make a real difference to bottom-line, sustainable results; to the way HR is perceived as a value adding business partner; and to build their personal brand by developing cutting-edge skills.

  • Learning Objectives

    This is a Mercer signature program designed for professionals seeking to develop their ability to link strategy to the talent agenda, operate under a strategic partnering paradigm and build self-insight through a collection of tools and exercises designed to stretch and develop them.

    Participants will learn:

    • How to balance the transactional, tactical, and strategic demands the business makes on HR, how to deliver most value to line and other business leaders and stakeholders.
    • The required behaviors, skills and capabilities around data - a new level of business acumen around how to tell a story with data to tell.
    • An effective story with data that will support strategic decision making and driving impact.
    • How to drive consensus and action using HR data to tell compelling business stories.
    • New abilities to read, anticipate, and manage potential conflict situations using the Thomas-Kilmann conflict handling modes instrument.

    This is an instructor-led two day training in Dubai, UAE.
