Strategic HR Business Partnering


According to the Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends survey in 2015, only 30% of global business leaders believe that HR has a reputation for sound business decisions, and only 22% believe that HR is adapting to the changing needs of their workforce.

The concept of HR Business Partnering has been introduced to Asia for years, yet according to such studies, this practice is still not widely seen as being sufficiently strategic and effective to make a difference to the business. Many HRBPs still find themselves burdened by cumbersome administrative tasks despite their strategic-sounding job titles. A fundamental change in mindset and top management support is crucial for the HRBP practice to gain traction among business stakeholders. HRBPs also need to see themselves as a trusted and valuable advisor to top management. They are not merely partnering with the business – they themselves are in fact a key part of the business.

Led by a highly experienced HR business partnering and transformation expert from the UK, this two-day workshop involves highly interactive discussions and activity among delegates. A multi-pronged approach encompassing business acumen, commercial instinct, analytics, project and relationship management will be employed during the course. Making business partnering work starts with understanding what it involves, and particularly what it looks like in practice, as well as its unique features in any one specific organisation. Delegates will gain a holistic understanding and appreciation of the enhanced credibility and positive contribution they could deliver to the overall business.
