This two-day program focuses on the primary skills that professionals need to be successful in their role as HR Business Partners in their organization. Making the transition to this role requires HR professionals to develop or enhance their skills in key areas so that they are able to perform effectively and be seen by line executives, managers and employees as a critical partner to the business. This may mean a fundamental shift in the way the HR interacts with line executives. It also means HR professionals will need to learn more about how the business operates, how to build and present an effective business case and how HR can maximize its value to the organization.
