Course outline

A lot has changed since David Ulrich, the 'father' of HR business partnering first presented his model for the optimum delivery of HR in the 1990s.

HR business partnering is now a popular and widespread approach to organising the HR function and there is an ongoing debate over what the role involves, how it should be put into practice and the challenges faced.

This three day course aims to develop the knowledge and skills of business partners to enable them to build credibility to influence key business stakeholders. Participants will familiarise themselves with the changing face of HR business partnering, explore key themes for today’s HRBP and build the capabilities required to successfully operate in today’s workplace.

They will gain insights into what it means to be a ‘business savvy’ HR professional, understand and speak the financial language of business and appreciate the important role of HR analytics in developing an evidence based approach to HR. This interactive and practical course will equip participants with knowledge and skills to be effective in the role of HR business partner and to develop practical plans and solutions that can be applied immediately in the workplace.

Who is the course for?

The target audience is all aspiring HR business partners, junior HR business partners who want to sharpen their skills and mid-level HR practitioners and professionals who are keen to understand the role in more detail would benefit from this course.

Attending this course provides a valuable opportunity to learn about key aspects of the HR business partner role to help participants to make, and influence informed decisions that are evidence-based and benefit the organisation.


Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance from the CIPD.
