Drive business performance through better strategic use of HR Business Partners

Pre-Conference Workshop: 29th October 2018 

Two-Day Conference: 30th - 31st October 2018
The HR Business Partner function is growing dramatically in importance. Across all industries, the HRBP has become an increasingly vital role to fulfil strategic internal consulting needs, as well as driving positive HR and business transformation objectives.
However, many organisations could further increase both scope and strategic benefit from the HRBP role.
An organisation with strategically-focused and capable HRBPs implements policies faster, is more responsive to change, and hears about problems earlier. The Strategic HR Business Partnering conference is focused on practical strategies for elevating this important function beyond operational duties and mindsets.
This event will present a wide variety of case studies where HRBPs have had real, bottom-line impact, solidifying the HRBP role as a core influencer within organisations.

About the workshop  | Monday 29th October
Strategic influence & communication: forging strong professional relationships within your organisation 
This workshop is designed specifically for HR Business Partners seeking to increase their strategic role within their organisation. Throughout the day, HRBPs will learn practical strategies to bolster their influence and relationships with both executive and operational managers, with an emphasis on streamlining the process through which policies are implemented. Focus will be dedicated to communication strategies to ensure feedback and transparency between HRBPs and other areas of the organisation. The final session will be an end-to-end case study of how to effectively bring an idea to fruition and implementation.
