This three day behavioural-focused Masterclass will help you identify the changing face of HR business partnering, explore key themes for HRBP’s today and why these have relevance, and explore key competencies of HRBP’s operating in today’s workplace.

You will have the opportunity to measure your personal effectiveness against those competencies and behaviours as well as discuss key issues such as the need to be insight-led as an HR professional including an in-depth understanding of strategy; the value of being evidence-led to make informed decisions that benefit the organisation; the concept of business value and how HR can add true value by focusing its activities on the key improvement points in a business that disproportionately positively impact on organisational success; the contribution of workplace analytics and drawing insight from data; critical elements to being an influential partner; and the role coaching and mentoring plays in the profile of the successful HR business partner.
