The A List is a bespoke, members only programme. It is uniquely designed for high potential Heads of HR to fast track their strategic careers and add value to the organisation through alignment of HR plans and powerful interactions to deliver the business goals.

The industry challenges

2 out of 5 HR professionals in early career stages feel underskilled in their role
(CIPD People Profession Review 2018)

HR people in start-ups often move from reception or recruitment roles into HR

78% of Heads of HR say they learn best from an experienced HR leader, but only 37% have a mentor
(NFT Research 2019)

Start-ups invest in senior HR professionals in latter stages, leaving emerging talent without mentors

Attracting and retaining talent is a top ten challenge for fast growth companies
(Startups 2019)

HR people in start-ups need to shape and scale culture, but often have little or no experience of doing so

Average tenure in tech companies in London is
1 year 9 months

If their company invested in their development 3 in 4 HR people would stay longer
(NFT Research 2019)
