We focus on how you build your relationships and influence your business partners so that you evolve your own, unique HR Business Partnering formula. The programme design meets a range of learning needs from those who are Junior HR Business Partner through to those new in a senior position.
HR Business Partner Skills consists of 10 learning modules, a half day experiential module with professional business role players plus a 90 minute follow-up session 8 weeks after the last module has been completed.
The online programme is facilitated live over the course of five half days each one consisting of two 90 minute modules with a 30 minute break in between. The programme is also delivered as a three-day classroom programme.
