People and Culture Masterclasses

Master the skills for finding, hiring, and retaining staff who will boost productivity and never want to leave...

Designed specifically for owners and managers in private businesses, these two x 2-day People and Culture Masterclasses will supercharge your workforce, solve existing HR challenges, and immediately add value to your business.

Facilitated by people management and recruitment expert, Mandy Johnson  (best-selling author of Family Village Tribe and Winning the War for Talent), these dynamic face-to-face masterclasses will cover everything from finding and recruiting staff (even in tight labour markets) to retaining and building a culture that thrives.

People and Culture Masterclass

The People and Culture Masterclasses have been designed to give leaders in People/ HR, operations and business owners in private businesses practical skills and tools to transform finding, hiring and retaining staff.

The content has been broken into two separate 2-day masterclasses; Finding and Recruiting and Retaining and Building Culture. The workshops run independently of each other, but most businesses find attending both programs extremely worthwhile.

Who are these masterclasses for?

If you’re in business, you’re in the “people” business. These masterclasses are designed for managers that are the people leaders in private businesses – those responsible for making decisions on recruitment, selection and retaining staff. For the best outcomes, the participant should be part of the leadership team and hold enough capacity to implement the changes required at every level of the organisation. This could be an existing leader who has an interest in people, an HR, operations or general manager, or the business owner.

Whether you’re seeking to overcome existing challenges or want to improve profitability via better people practices, the People and Culture masterclasses will help you create a long-lasting and high-performing workforce that will drive your business forward.
