Increasing Impact through Strategic HR Partnering

A one-day live virtual training course 


8 March 2021, 10.00am – 04.30pm 

Course Introduction

Increasing Impact through Strategic HR Partnering

This one-day online course is based on the first day of the two day face-to-face programme, Strategic HR Business Partnering, which Human Resources Online has been running in South East Asia for the last five years.

The course now also contains specific focus on strategic partnering within the current pandemic, both in terms of ensuring the continuity of the business, and planning to transform the organisation for a more successful future.

The second day of the previous programme is now a separate online course, ‘Transforming the HR Organisation to Create Value’. Each course can be attended as an independent training day. However, the two sessions also complement each other and you may therefore like to attend both trainings.

Strategic HR partnering is the role within Dave Ulrich’s HR business partnering approach concerned with aligning HR policies, processes and practices with business needs, in order to enable the ongoing transformation and success of the business. It is at the centre of HR’s ongoing quest to be more strategic, and is the key differentiator between HR being vitally important and totally irrelevant.

The role can and should be undertaken by people working in the job of embedded HR business partners, but also by HR directors, centre of excellence specialists, and HR generalists who want to be more strategic too. All of these people in these different roles then need to contribute and collaborate together, co-developing their approaches with their business clients, in order to make strategic partnering a success.

However, despite its importance, and the fact that it is over 20 years since the ‘Ulrich model’ was published, strategic HR partnering is still something most organisations and HR practitioners find difficult to implement well. Part of this is a lack of understanding about what strategic HR involves and how it can be executed.
Consequently, in many cases, the intended behaviours and impacts of this role never materialise. But there are organisations which are implementing strategic partnering well – it can be done.

Attend this online workshop to catch-up with the latest thinking on HR business partnering and to fully understand what the role can look like; the mindset, skills and behaviours involved; and how HR practitioners and teams can up their strategic game.

Through leveraging these opportunities, HR can substantially increase its credibility and contribution, and the impact it has on the organisation it works within.
