HR Business Partner Course

The HR Business Partner: 1-Day Course From JSB Group

Attend this one-day seminar and benefit from the latest knowledge and techniques to operate as an effective business partner and measure experiences against those of other organisations. The CIPD has noted that the Business Partner model is the most commonly utilised HR service delivery model, with nearly 50% of organisations employing business partners in their ranks.

However, operating as a business partner demands a starkly different body of skills compared to more transactional forms of HR service delivery. It necessitates a far deeper and broader understanding of your organisation, the ability to work alongside all levels of management, greater self-awareness and impact, expertise in creating and leading change and the maintenance of a business focus. Not an easy set of skills to develop!

This one-day course is one of JSB's most popular HR events, and  will help you build this skill set and allow you to benchmark your current experience against best industry practice and what other organisations are doing.

On completion of this course participants will:

  • Understand what is meant by 'HR business partnering' and its impact on your day-to-day work
  • Gain a better understanding of the requirements of an HR Business Partner - and how to ensure smooth implementation
  • Adapt key competencies for a successful transition from operational to strategic HR
  • Develop a new set of competencies: including business acumen, change management and relationship building
  • Learn how other organisations have successfully implemented partnering: HR interventions that make a difference
  • Overcoming resistance and relaying a positive message

Suitability - Who should attend?

The HR Business Partner course is designed for HR directors and managers, HR officers and advisors, HR business partners, compensation and benefits experts, resourcing specialists.  

Outcome / Qualification etc.
