  • Understanding the organisational needs and the business Strategy.
  • Identifying the HR Strategy and People Priorities required to execute the business strategy.
  • Defining the HR Roadmap to ensure ‘human capital’ to address business challenges and deliver on the strategy.
  • Delivering HR Services and HR capabilities are in place for the current and future needs.
