In this course we provide valuable information on how Human Resource Business Partnering (HRBP) operates in practice and discuss the required business partnering skills of those individuals working within the Human Resources (HR) function within an organization. 

We begin by reviewing the role of Human Resource Management (HRM) practice within the context of the organization. Next we develop a discussion on what HRBP skills are required to meet today’s tough organizational challenges. This leads to a conversation of how an individual can operate successfully as a business partner, specifically in identifying business partnering opportunities and building relationships; promoting the HRBP role and understanding business needs. 

The course is suitable if you are aspiring to, or are new to the HR Business Partner role, or an HR professional working for an organization, which wishes to progress their HR function to operate as a Business Partner in practice.

The facilitator presented materials in an easy-to-understand manner, providing an effective overview of the strategic role that HRBPs serve within an organization. A good refresher!

The course provided a different view of the HR department, and analysed it from a partner perspective rather than just a branch of the organization.
