Getting to Grips with HR Business Partnering
13 September @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£399.00
Nearly fifteen years on from Dave Ulrich’s "HR Champions", business partnering is still the aspect of HR transformation which organisations find most difficult to implement. In many cases, the intended behaviours and impacts of this role never materialise. But there are organisations which are implementing business partnering well – it can be done.
Attend this seminar to catch-up with the latest thinking on HR business partnering and to fully understand what the role can look like; the skills and behaviours involved; and how existing HR generalists can be transformed into effective business partners.
With the support of the trainer and other attendees, reflect on how the role can be tailored to, and then developed in, your own organisation
Also review how you can build the credibility of your HR function to lead the creation or renewal of embedded HR teams.
Through leveraging these opportunities, HR can substantially increase its credibility and contribution, and the impact it has on the organisations it works within.
Who should attend?
- HR director, business partner or consultant
- Head of business partner team or responsible for setting these teams up
- HR generalist, transitioning into a business partner role
