Executive Summary: The Effective HR Business Partner

This definitive report examines fully the essential aspects of business partnering, the role of HR Business Partners and their work. Guided by interviews with senior HR leaders and experiences in several organisations, a key finding is that many organisations struggle with the Ulrich model, or to make business partnering work effectively – mainly because of interpretation, understanding, preparation, capability and implementation issues.
