HR Business Partner Development Forum

9 September 2015

Church House Conference Centre, Dean’s Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3NZ

Expected to fulfil a complex and emerging role, many Business Partners have received little or no training to equip them to operate to the optimum. This development event will consider the latest thinking in each of the core areas of responsibility of HRBPs, providing an opportunity to learn and share experiences with like-minded professionals. 

Who is it for?

Business Partners and would-be Business Partners looking to enhance their skills and knowledge and improve their performance and contribution.

Overview

The title Business Partner implies a business understanding and a strong set of relationship skills. But it is more than this – organisations expect Business Partners to work hand-in-glove with line management whilst upholding the values, policies and principles which emanate from the HR centre. The Business Partner is expected to solve organisational and people problems whilst ensuring that the organisation remains legally compliant and operates to corporate standards. Expected to fulfil a complex and emerging role, many Business Partners have received little or no training to equip them to operate to the optimum.

Content

Since the advent of the HRBP model, we have seen a significant change in the employment landscape. Internationalisation, technology, cost pressures and changes in employee and societal expectations have been some of the factors which have impacted organisation life. And yet, in many organisations, HR continues to operate with a functional Head, supported by specialists, a team of Business Partners and a level of process outsourcing.

HRBPs must navigate the complexity of business change while continuing to provide, directly or indirectly, core HR services such as resourcing, development, communications and employee relations.

The aim of this workshop is to:

• provide context to the business and economic environment organisations are operating in now and into the future
• clarify the role of the Business Partner and place it in an overall HR and organisational context
• examine the role of ‘partnership’, especially in relation to key stakeholder management
• give HRBPs a strategic and commercial toolkit to be applied to their own organisations provide an update to HRBPs in the key areas of employment legislation
• spend time examining services of the HR function – development, recruitment, employee relations and reward.
