HR Business Partnering 2.0

Course Overview

This workshop will focus on the role of the HR Business Partner now and into the future and the broader context impacting on the HR Business Partner and how it shapes the expectations of the role. The workshop will also explore what competencies are required by the HR Business Partner now and into the future. It will further discuss the transformation of the HR function and what the HR Business Partner can do to deliver value to the various stakeholders in the organisation. If you want to know what the evolution of HR Business Partnering entails and would like to ensure that you consider all the factors in effectively implementing the HR Business Partnering concept, this workshop is for you!

Dave Ulrich recently wrote that the HR Business Partner concept has evolved since its inception and that it has moved from business partner 1.0 to business partner 2.0. He describes the evolution in terms of movement from roles and outcomes to a logic of how HR delivers value to employees, organizations, customers, investors, and communities through individual talent (competence, workforce, people), leadership throughout an organization, and organization capabilities (culture, workplace, systems). Dave Ulrich stated further that:

“HR’s evolution will continue as current business issues place HR centre stage and HR needs to continually upgrade to respond.”

It is, however, also true that many organisations have not yet established the HR Business Partner concept in their organisations and has just started implementing it. Despite different organisations being in different places of the continuum between HRBP 1.0 and HRBP 2.0, Martin Claen & Dieter Kern from Mercer concluded that the idea of business partnering remains stable: value creation from the “people” dimension of the company.

The aim of this workshop is to create an awareness of all the concepts required to implement the HR Business Partnering concept optimally. During the workshop, you will get to know what to do after the workshop to develop your skills further and what to do back at work to ensure the effective transformation of the Human Resources function to support the HR Business Partner.
