The term ‘business partnering’ means engaging with other people from across different areas of business, both internally and externally, to bring effort, knowledge, skill and capability together in order to achieve greater business outcomes.
It also encapsulates the more recent need for organisations to develop shared services, shared resources, shared capability and shared risk.
Over the last decade, there has been a greater demand for HR professionals to partner with their organisations and deliver people management solutions that drive and support business performance.
With businesses increasingly demanding more of HR, the traditional role of the HR professional has expanded and evolved, and HR is now expected to adopt the role of business partner and ‘internal consultant’.
This programme focuses on helping HR professionals understand what business partnering and consulting is and provides practical tools and techniques to enable them to improve their influencing and problem solving skills, and work more effectively with client managers
This course is aimed at senior level individuals who work cross-functionally and with other people to achieve business results, and is particularly helpful for those who engage frequently with senior managers and executives.
