HR Business Partners

HR Domains (Career GPS)  Leadership Development and Organizational Culture; Organizational Design and Development; Employee Relations; HR Leadership

In partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), this two-day program focuses on the primary skills that professionals need to be successful in their role as HR Business Partners in their organization. Making the transition to this role requires HR professionals to develop or enhance their skills in key areas so that they are able to perform effectively and be seen by line executives, managers and employees as a critical partner to the business. This may mean a fundamental shift in the way the HR interacts with line executives. It also means HR professionals will need to learn more about how the business operates, how to build and present an effective business case and how HR can maximize its value to the organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the key leadership skills for HR Business Partners
  • Learn and demonstrate effective internal consulting skills
  • Understand business acumen and the financial drivers of company performance
  • Develop a business case and implementation plan for your organization

Who Should Attend:

  • Mid-level HR professionals
