Since the pandemic, some of HR’s conventional strategies for delivering services have had to change, particularly those that previously relied on personal access and the physical proximity of inter-related teams.

Many organisations are now taking the opportunity to establish Service Excellence Quality Circles to review and, in many cases, refresh delivery protocols and processes to ensure all customers, whether internal or external, are receiving a high quality service experience during these changing times.

As well as the benefits to your key stakeholders, quality circles can offer the opportunity to connect HR professionals, give a sense of purpose and future orientation, stimulate a commercial, customer-focused mindset and support personal development.

This online session aims to kick-start the setting up of an HR Quality Circle, by outlining a structure for reviewing the current service provision, as well as covering tools such as Customer Segmentation and Journey Mapping to support the process.

Participants (limited to 12 per session) will be able to access UHR’s Quality Circle Room for sharing new practices and approaches that have worked and added value, as well as encouraging and supporting new ideas and initiatives, some of which may qualify for UHR’s Best Practice Awards 2021.

Who should attend?

Preferably 2-3 HR members from the same university who have volunteered to form an HR Quality Circle and who would benefit from a structured approach to undertaking an evaluation of the current service, in order to prioritise, plan and take action.
