Build credibility as an HR leader that influences, impacts, and advances your business.
Ask ten different people what it means to be an ‘HR Business Partner’ (HRBP), and you will probably get eleven different answers.
There are tons of roles, all with the title of HR Business Partner, underpinned by different job profiles. There is an apparent variation regarding role accountability and expectations.
This course aims at providing attendees with a clear understanding of what is precisely meant by HR business partnership based on best practices in the field of modern HR management. Moreover, the course introduces the various skills and competencies that HR business partners must develop in themselves to add value and contribute to business objectives.
The most effective HR professionals today possess an entirely new set of competencies, ranging far beyond human resource functions. This intensive course builds the business and financial acumen necessary for HR professionals to have a meaningful impact on the future of the industry, beyond just talent management.
This course will be facilitated as a workshop whereby the facilitator will engage attendees to identify the various roles and responsibilities that modern HRBPs are expected to play, as well as the necessary competencies that they should develop in themselves to play the role to excellent effect.
Many organizations, though, have experienced problems with installing the HR Business Partner model by filling the role with HR generalists, who are long on tactical skills but short on strategic skills, especially in Organizational Structure and Design. When this happens, the partnerships prove frustrating on both the Business unit side and the HR side.
What this demonstrates, more than ever, is that the HR Business Partner needs to possess a whole new set of competencies, some of the related to the business side of their job and some of them related to the HR side of their job.
The seminar will focus on the true competencies needed to become a true “business partner.”
For those who are new to the role, the seminar will help with planned interventions to develop the required competencies. For those who are currently in the role, the seminar will help with enhancing those competencies.
