Why Should You Attend?

The conversation about HR having “a seat at the table” is over. Human Resources is a critical business function, and a true HR Business Partner who is well versed in the needs of the business is critical to ensuring success. Many organizations have struggled on this front, filling the role of Business Partner with HR generalists based on demonstrated skill in HR functions. A new set of competencies grounded in a holistic view of the business is paramount.

What makes an HR professional a true Business Partner? This course focuses on three pillars for building business acumen: Financial and Analytic Capability, Improving the Workplace and Consulting, and Execution Skills. This course identifies connections and parallels between different facets of the business, outlining how the Business Partner can effectively build and overall strategy that supports short and long- term business goals. Topics of study include:

  • Building Financial Acumen—The language and thought processes used in making strategic business decisions

  • Improving Financial Literacy—Identify the quantifiable benefits of talent initiatives and use the process the business requires to justify investments

  • Acting on Meaningful Analytics—Build a Talent Scorecard that aligns key talent metrics with business objectives

  • The ROI of Engagement, Collaboration and Retention—How improvements here pay for themselves over and over and how to make that case to your leadership team

  • Building Trust & Transparency—The key traits that business leaders must possess in this area and how to help them build and improve them

  • The Eight Drivers of Improvement in ECR—Turning Values into Observable Behaviors

  • Execution & Change Management—How to accelerate and drive change

Course Outline

Session One—Building Financial and Analytic Capability

The first day in the program covers the increasingly important decision science of talent analytics. This skill is critical to recommending and making sound business-based talent decisions. The day is built on three important pillars:

  • Building Financial Acumen—The language and thought processes used in making strategic decisions

  • Improving Financial Literacy—Identify the quantifiable benefits of talent initiatives and use the process the business requires to justify investments

  • Acting on Meaningful Analytics—Build a Talent Scorecard that aligns key talent metrics with business objectives

Session Two—Strategies for Improving the Workplace through Engagement, Collaboration & Retention

The second day in the program, Strategies for Improving the Workplace through Engagement, Collaboration and Retention, is centered on the important advances in talent practices made since many business leaders attended “B School.” This course encompasses three main topical areas that transform these behaviors from nice benefits to “must have” business drivers and presents the logic and methodology necessary for you to transform the work of your business unit leaders.

  • The ROI of Engagement, Collaboration and Retention—How improvements here pay for themselves over and over and how to make that case to your leadership team

  • Building Trust & Transparency—The key traits that business leaders must possess in this area and how to help them build and improve them

  • The Eight Drivers of Improvement in ECR—Turning Values into Observable Behaviors

Session Three—Consulting & Execution Skills

The third and final day in the program covers the important set of skills and competencies that HR Business Partners must possess in order to move from being a service provider to a partner capable of full participation in business outcomes. It is not enough for HR to proscribe a series of activities for employees, they must be able to build coalition and effect change. This course, entitled Consulting & Execution Skills, covers these key areas:

  • Execution & Change Management—How to accelerate and drive change

  • Influencing Skills—Learn how to move audiences and recognize the stages involved in acceptance

  • The Migration of the HRBP—Understand the next steps involved in implementing your new capabilities toward business impact
