HR working groups

A platform for HR professionals to connect, learn and exchange insights within the education sector

We understand that HR in the education sector has unique challenges. Tidal's HR working groups are here to make problem-solving a team sport. 

Hosted virtually every 2-3 months, our working groups provide a confidential forum for HR leaders to connect, share and brainstorm solutions to challenges faced by each member of the group. These sessions run for 60-90 mins and are kept to small numbers (up to 10 attendees) to allow rich discussion and robust participation from all participants. 

Best of all, it's 100% free.

Colleges and private educators need opportunities to share insights and stay ahead of changes in an evolving sector. Our tertiary education group allows HR leaders of post-secondary providers to focus on issues related to their organisations.

Frequently asked

Q: What day and time are the sessions hosted?

A: Each HR working group meeting is set at a time that is most convenient and preferable for all participants. Usually, these are during lunchtime or at the end of the day to minimise schedule clashes at work. 

Q: I've got something I want to discuss at the working group. How do I make sure my topic is covered? 

A: Each group member can email a topic to discuss to the facilitator 1 week prior to the scheduled meeting, including how urgent the topic is. The facilitator will create an agenda of discussion topics ordered based on priority. If you don't have a topic to discuss, we'd still love to have you onboard - part of being in the group is to give back and share insights with others. 

Q: What topics are covered in the working groups?

A: Members can bring any question, issue or topic to the table. Some past topics have included recruitment, culture, training, compliance, performance management, organisational transformation, and compensation and benefits. Guest speakers join sessions from time to time to provide expertise in specialised areas. 

Q: Can anyone join the working group?

A: Due to the senior nature of the topics discussed and the higher level of expertise sought, these working groups are best suited to HR managers and leaders.
